Anyone done that stretch recently? The posts I found were many years old. Can you park free at either park? How many miles is the paddle? Is the fishing good? My nephew wants to rent a kayak and go with me down that river. Any local rental outfits?

If that's part of the Greenbelt that river is flooded right now. It will be weeks before it's safe to float down.

Here's a photo my nephew sent. Again this is the Greenbelt not sure if it's the same creek/River that flows from Ray Roberts.

Not recently.

Cost $7 to park or your state park pass.

Its about 10 miles from RR to 380.

Depends on the time of the year but would be weak fishing right now.

No rental that I know of.

The water has been too low but now it's flowing too much. It's constant getting choked by log jams making it impassable. I've only put in at 380 and paddle up river until I get stopped by a log jam. You might be better looking at Trinity River Kayak Co. for rentals and a local river trip. The fishing is decent in those areas they go to.

ive fished that water at least 3 Xs but never from dam to park.
like the others from the park up to the jams in the clear creek. Also around a 1/4 mile up the Elm before i turned around. have also fished from the park down to Lake Dallas and back. I didnt see any jams big enough to prevent passage but there may be more towards Roberts that i didnt get to. It was flowing pretty decebt one time i was there and the catching was poor.

Thanks, everyone! Maybe with the rain, the logjams will wash away downstream. I've been wanting to do the Elm Fork from Sandy Lane dam on downstream. My nephew can get a yak there and we can let them pick us up.

Stay dry! IslandJim

Went by there around midnight before the storms came in. The flow has slowed. Signs in all the parks stating fishing vessels are prohibited at this time.

By the way, I have made the paddle from 380 to Lewisville lake and 380 to Roberts. Each time was perfect, and no log jams. I was lucky. Most times there are jams. Spoke to game wardens Thursday night and they states there are some major jams all along the way to Lewisville and probably preventing a lot of fish from moving upstream right now.
