The rains this week have caused Canyon Lake to rise, and since New Braunfels and the surrounding area have been out of drought conditions, the lake is in need of letting some of that water flow on.
Hence, the U.S Army Corp of Engineers has increased the release rate from the Canyon Dam to over 1,000 cubic feet per second, deeming it unsafe for tube floating recreation. The Guadalupe River remains open to rafting, and kayaking, however guided trips from New Braunfels and surrounding area outfitters are highly suggested.
The Comal River, which flows through Downtown New Braunfels, is unaffected and opened to recreation.
The flow rate of the Guadalupe River will remain monitored daily, and will reopen to tubing recreation once Canyon Lake levels off, and the flow from Canyon Dam is decreased to a safe CFS (cubic feet per second) for floating.
