This is the forum post for the upcoming June 11th trip to the Sabine River. ** Update: Trip is on pause, likely until the fall, when it cools down.** A place for people to coordinate and discuss. I would highly suggest you buddy up with someone on here to reduce the amount of gear you need to bring, sharing a tent and cooking gear will make this a more enjoyable trip. This will be an easy one, no reason to bring a ton of gear. Also, if you are a fisherman we will be in a prime area, just remember to get your Texas fishing license if you plan on fishing.

That was before I started with BCOS but, I have heard lots about those days. That those paddles were quite fun from what I hear from time to time.
Ahhh yes. Tiger Fang Falls. Isn't that where they filmed the waterfall scene from Last of the Mohicans? I'm pretty sure that's right. :-)
You might also consider resurrecting a version of the old Labor Day Float. Back in the day, we'd do a section below Toledo Bend Dam for the 3 day weekend. The last one I did was probably the late 90's, but it was always a lot of fun. Something similar on the Sandbar section would be a blast.
Can anyone get in touch with Danny Rowzee to bring up the SS Connestoga Canoe?
We can still do a day paddle. Typically back in the day when I started going on this paddle we originally run it in august with the John & Cathy Joyce. Reason being was the water level for the 2 water features we like on that run. Tiger Fang Falls and Bump Bumping Rocks where we swam and took our lunch break. We can do this I can lead this day and I will probably put in back on later to do the other sections of the Sabine Sandbar run Or vice-versa. We run this at about 8' water level
Just my two cents ... June starts getting pretty dang hot. And I'm getting pretty old and grumpy. I'd probably pass on camping in June/July/Aug, but am definitely interested otherwise. On the other hand, I'd do a float (i.e. no camping) anytime there is enough water.
Yeah, I know ... I'm a wimp.
BTW, I floated FM 2087 to Hwy 149 (just south of Longview) on Saturday. It was about 450 cfs on the Longview gauge. You could go a bit lower ... though I probably wouldn't.
I have Dorcheat Paddle on May 21st I just have not gotten it put on the events tab yet.
It looks like I am going to have to move the date either forward or back. I'm looking at my schedule to see when else we could potentially do it. Hopefully I will be able to do it earlier but I will update as I know more information.
