We wanted to know when you are going to have another fish day. Says KKDV

The natural beauty of Texas and the playfulness of the water make the trip here worthwhile. The starting location is a short drive from San Angelo, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Texas is often easier than elsewhere, so don't forget that the rivers in this state are less demanding. If you're
    a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, there are not so many other good rivers for that around here. Great exercise and just
being out on the river for a while have a lot of people coming here. The San Angelo to Concho stretch of Concho River in Tom Green Concho County is 36 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class I-II section. A stretch this long is of course too much for a one day trip, so it looks like you will be camping out. There are some good stretches to paddle in this river system, the San Angelo to Concho stretch is one of them.
