Medina Lake is approximately 45 minutes from San Antonio, Texas....

I think Travis Pastrona, use to have a place there. Nitro Circus did a segment, there a few years ago.

The bright side is that there can be a great deal of cleanup performed.

Lake Medina always seems to have issues with levels even before the drought. If I recall it is in the same boat as lake Travis in which they have to release water no matter what for the farmers in castroville.

Correct....Lake Travis is subject first to whatever the farmers/ranchers need, then boaters get the leftovers.

This has been Another very harsh year for everyone in agriculture.

Pray for rain.

When Medina was full -- we used to ski way up in the river and get some great water... Now you can walk across the river....

Looks like the Perdanales River that feeds Lake Travis is in the same condition ? :(

Yessir aquaman! The Perdanales was my favorite place to ski in Texas! The water was nice and warm.... We would travel up there on Sundays and spend the afternoons out there.... That was a GREAT place to ski and hang out.... I hope it comes back soon....
