It’s been an odd summer to look out at the Brazos River and not see anything other than ducks on top of the water.

The heavy springtime rains flooded the river and deposited a lot of debris into the Brazos, making it unsafe for boaters, paddleboaters and kayakers.

Most springs and summers, well, even into fall with the warm weather in Central Texas, you’ll find people enjoying the Brazos on kayaks, paddleboards and boats.

During football season, Baylor fans with boats will make their way downriver to McLane Stadium to sailgate on game day.

Dragboat races are held in April when the river cooperates, and often in the spring you’ll see competitive rowing teams from universities to our north practicing their skills because the weather is nicer here.
