Boat rental this week

Hey all,

A group of us were looking into renting a boat for this Thursday. I read somewhere that there is a drought going on and water levels might be low. Is this the case? If we do rent, any recommendations?

We have had quite bit of rain recently, but the lakes are still very low. You may need to reconsider your plans not because of low water levels though, but because of thunderstorms in the forecast for Thursday. It may not be a day to be out on the lakes.

MrTed is accurate. While we've had a little rain the extremely low level of water at Lake Travis means many hazards are just below the surface making it very dangerous for someone unfamiliar with the lake. It is something like 35% of capacity.

Those here on the board will be glad to offer alternative suggestions if you're here for a conference and want some other outdoor plans?
