Spring and early summer rains mean higher than average water levels and fast-moving flows at the Beach St location. Before heading out to row, please refer to the USGS river level graphs located on the Rowing Safety page. The Trinity River height should be 16' or below. Safety comes first, so please be mindful of water conditions and plan to row with a buddy whenever possible.
