Texas whitewater, Hog Creek

McLennan county, Patton Church to Speegleville Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II     13 miles
Speegleville Road is not a good takeout point. A better trip would start from the low water crossing at Shiloh Baptist Church about 1 mi north of Hwy 185. Go all the way down to Lake Waco, cross the lake NE for 1 mi and take out at the City of Woodway Park at the end of Estates Dr. Total River distance is 12 miles. Water has to be 100-200cfs or better to be navigable upstream of the private road bridge on McLennan Crossing Rd which is 3.5
    miles up from the mouth of Hog Creek at Lake Waco. Springtime fishing is good for white bass, largemouth bass, and crappie from McLennan Crossing Bridge to Lake Waco along Hog Creek. Says WacoPadlr

The starting location
is a short drive from Waco, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. The Patton Church to Speegleville Road section of Hog Creek in McLennan County is 13 miles long and has been rated as a class II section by American Whitewater. This section is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so go ahead and pack your sleeping bag. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you  
won't find many other paddling spots. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the Patton Church to Speegleville Road section is one of them. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often easier than elsewhere, so better not forget that rivers in this state are less demanding. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. Getting some good exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors have people coming from far and near.
