And, we'd set out trot lines and make a feeble attempt to catch some catfish but the canned beans, sardines, Vienna sausage and crackers were usually our supper. Didn't matter though because we'd have a night on the river, under the stars to look forward to and then go back home and tell tales of the "cougars" yelling during the night and all those big catfish that got away. Something about those deep hardwood forests of East Texas that bring peace to my mind. I think maybe the Neches and Angelina Rivers are similar to the Sabine but so many people have their eyes on those places to build even more dams. Folks, don't let them dam your river.



Great post ... you forgot one thing though ... walking on those sugar white sandbars and the sand "squeaking" underfoot! Floating the Sabine now from below the dam is awesome and lonesome!

I've spent many evenings/nights on similar outings on the Neches below Steinhagen Lake (Dam B).

Yeah, the Guadalupe is very pretty. Although, I'd have to say the Brazos for me. I grew up in Brazoria, and it runs through there. I love all the history of the area and that at one point it was just about as busy as the Mississippi. I also love all the stories of plantations and ghosts along it. Now, also, living near Austin, I live close to the San Gabriel. It's a pretty river too, sort of reminiscent of the Guadalupe like in the pictures above. For Muhnay, I believe the Guadalupe runs through San Marcos and New Braunfels, and possibly through Wimberly.

I'm with awecelot.... I like the Frio. It can be a 100 outside and the river is still cold. Great river to tube down and beautiful scenery.

Those were taken on the Guadalupe at a park right off River Road outside of Gruene (near New Braunfels) - gruene, tx - Google Maps
