Whicita Falls Paddling

I’m going to be spending some time this coming Spring in the Wichita Falls, Texas area and wondering if there is any paddling in the area? Thanks.

the Red River…
for moving water and the Hagerman Wildlife refuge on Lake Texoma is a great place to see wildlife on flat water. I was born in the Sherman area, but now am far removed. I would love to paddle there myself someday.

Brazos River
Below Possum Kingdom lake. It would be a little out of your way south, but has 10,20,40 mile trips with shuttle service. http://www.rochellescanoerental.com/

Very nice scenery, old cowboy history, Read “Goodbye to a River” by John Graves…it’s about this stretch of the Brazos… It can run low though depending on water release from PK dam.

My favorite lake right now is Lake Murray in Ok.

Crystal clear water with a lot of neat rock formations, primative camping all over…again it is a little out of your way, but if your up to traveling and overnighters, it’s worth a look.
