Pecos River Camping I – EP 48

My pup Katie & myself headed out on an adventure to boat from Box Canyon boat ramp on Lake Amistad, TX to a camping spot on the Pecos river for a few nights. And an adventure it was. Lake Amistad and the Rio Grande are at record low levels now (2021). I traveled in a 17′-0″ aluminum flat bottom boat with a 37 HP mud motor engine. Some stretches of the Rio Grande were 6 inch’s deep with the motor skeg riding thru mud. Other stretches were narrow with cliff on the side. All in all a great scenic boat ride. Seminole Canyon was completely silted in. I wanted to check out Panther Cave but could not. The Pecos river just before HWY 90 bridge was 3″ to 4″ deep and I did get stuck running too slow on a sand bottom. I Drifted down river 1/2 mile to deeper water to get back on plane and motored thru this area at a faster pace. The dispersed camping spot 6 miles up the Pecos that I camped was very nice. Perfect weather, no issues during trip and Katie had a Blast.

    Holy smokes! When I was a kid and fished that area where the Pecos hit the Rio, there was not any dirt visible. The water was 30’-50’ deeper and went from canyon wall to canyon wall! The 1970’s….Can you even launch a boat at the High Bridge? Fished and explored that area as a child from 1968-1982. We ran a lot of trotlines and caught lots of catfish and a few gars and would bait a fishing hole for rod n reel fishing….

    Another outstanding video Chesapeake Bay. Not many people can experience this remote area – so, thanks for sharing. Great camera work and editing.

    I remember fishing out on the Pecos several years back and seen some half way sunken Pueblo style houses in the river maybe a couple miles north of the rio grand
