That looks awesome! I have a a kayak bass tournament coming up and limited time to get to the lake to look around. I also don't want to paddle 5 miles for nothing...LOL
Me and a buddy did a tourney there a couple years ago and I don't think the lake level has changed much but we put in at the Concho rec area. It is pretty much a river from where the two rivers meet and down toward the dam or whats left of the main lake. Lots of trees line the channel that used to be 20 feet under water. Like you we never had been and knew little about the lake. I can't help much but say that you probably want have to paddle far to be up the Colorado or the Concho from the Concho Rec Area.
