I rented a ranch house on lone man creek outside of wimberley. It's located on section of the creek with weirs and overflows. The pictures of the rentals show water flowing over the weirs on each end, which look cool and inviting. Once arriving, the water was too low to flow over the upstream weir into out reservoir, and too low to flow out on the downstream end. Is this normal for late July? Or was this just a bad year? Would late spring have ample rainfall to provide water flow throughout the hill country? Thanks for the help.

That chart is for "average" rainfall. The weather in that part of the country has been anything but average the last 10 years

when I lived in comfort Tx. I saw a couple of yrs. that we had 12" storms, some would train through. boerne had to shut down main street at the river more than once. one of those yrs. the guadalupe ran over 10,000 cfs for a couple of days, canyon was wide open at 5500 cfs and the spillway was about 2-3' deep.
it will come.

I went to canyon dam when it was flowing over the spillway. It was quite a site.

9 of us from whitewater sports (used to work weekends there as security) took an old 20' military raft they had and ran that sucker, horseshoe falls was about a 6' wave. went from the dam to what was called the landing and amazing that we were not killed. bounced off a lot of cypress trees tryin to get the hell out of there. roflmao good times!
