Some Texas rivers are running too low for good floating, but a few waterways are flowing well enough for tubing or boating, according to the National Weather Serviceâ€™s Texas River Recreation Advisoryfor this weekend.

Below is a list of those rivers that are notÂ categorized as â€œriver below minimum.â€ Even if the rivers are low, that doesnâ€™t mean you canâ€™t have a fun and refreshing swim.
- Ideal water conditions for floating: the Trinity River at Livingston Dam.
- Satisfactory water conditions for floating: the Colorado River in the Highways 183 area near Austin; and the Neches River at Town Bluff Dam.
- Minimum water available for floating. Some portaging or lining through shallow water is necessary: the Rio Grande River at Presidio; the San Marcos River; the San Antonio River in the area of Farm Road 791 and Falls City; the Guadalupe River near Cuero; the Frio River at Garner State Park; the Angelina River at the Sam Rayburn Dam; Elm Fork at Lewisville Dam; and Denton Creek at Grapevine Dam.
