San Gabriel River (Texas)


San Gabriel River (Texas)

The San Gabriel River is a river that flows through central Texas. The San Gabriel River is formed in Georgetown, Texas (about 26 miles north of Austin, Texas) by the confluence of the North Fork San Gabriel and the South Fork San Gabriel (both originating in Burnet County). There are two major impoundments of the river; Lake Georgetown along the North Fork and Granger Lake about 25 miles below the confluence. Both are U.S. Army Corps of Engineers impoundments. The San Gabriel River eventually drains into the Brazos River northeast of College Station, Texas. There is a city park in Georgetown, Texas at the confluence of the North and South Fork of the San Gabriel.

Like most Texas Hill Country rivers; the San Gabriel river is characterized by limestone river bottoms, some moderate rapids, small canyons, and muddy bottoms along slower moving stretchs. Recreational activities include canoeing and kayaking, as well as fishing. Typical fish species found in the San Gabriel river (not counting the imoundments at Lake Georgetown and Granger Lake which contain a myriad of game fish and introduced species) are Catfish, Largemouth Bass, Sunfish, Common Carp, Longnose Gar, and various species of bait fish.
