Took a trip around Canyon Lake today. Most of the boat ramps are way under water. Did see a couple of boats on the lake but don't know where they launched. Probably Potters Creek. 1. The launch just north of Comal Park. The end of the ramp is just past the light pole. 2. Is just west of the dam. 3. The release at the dam. I have caught trout by that big Cyprus on the right.. 4. The flowers in the yard love all this rain.

I like your pics. I've never seen Canyon with that much water. Amazing. Did the bridge in Gruene get swamped?

I thought the dam spillway would keep a lake from getting above a certain level. (?)

The water looks like it is 3 or 4 feet below the spillway. I doubt if the level will get much higher unless we get a good rain. They are releasing quite a bit of water.

It got pretty close, but never got over the roadway from what I saw.

We have a place about a mile down from the dam and it is running higher and faster that we have seen it in the nine years we have had the place. The good news is that all of this fast moving water will clean out the river. Over the last 4-5 years a lot of debris has been stacking up in places.

Many may not believe this but me and my father drove across the top of the dam in I believe it was 1963. They had an equipment auction after they finished the dam. We got turned around somewhere or another and ended up driving across the top of it. Back then none of the old timers thought it would fill up. They said there were too many caves and such to siphon of the water. Looks like they were wrong.

I went up there in the early 60's just before the dam was complete and I too thought that something that big could never fill up. Thats a lot of water.
