Yes, Central Texas is in a Severe Drought and this has caused all of the LCRA public boat ramps to close. But, Lake Travis is still more than 50' deep for more than 50 miles of the lake! This makes it a good thing for those who have a boat slip or rent a boat on Lake Travis. There is more open water per boat due to the limited number of boats on the lake at any given time. Now is the time to enjoy your more private lake. Generally speaking, you should boat closer to the steeper cliff-side of the lake rather than the gradual slope when in unfamiliar waters. Staying in the areas near the red and green buoys is another way to stay in the deeper water. An even better method is to have a good map of Lake Travis that shows depth and contour lines. And, yes, what do you know? We have a great map available in the Briarcliff Marina Ship Store. Lake Travis still has the same sunshine, warm temps and clear water we all love! C’mon and play in your favorite lake in Central Texas! The rain will come - and when the water level rises, so does the number of boats on the lake!
