USACE To Close Canyon Lake’s Floodgates Jan. 25, Affecting Local River Flows

Expect changes in river flow rates in the Canyon Tailrace Jan. 25. The stretch of the Guadalupe River below Canyon Lake is considered by Trout Unlimited to be one of the top 100 trout streams in North America.

Stay off the Guadalupe River on Jan. 25.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will temporarily close Canyon Lake’s floodgates to perform its annual inspection of the flood-control tower.

The closure will affect local river flows below Canyon Dam, which USACE said may impact some river users. The dam and associated outlet works will continue to function as intended.

The Corps did not give a timeline for repairs.

“We appreciate the public’s understanding and support of this mission-essential inspection work,” said Canyon Lake Manager Javier Perez Ortiz.
