Great stuff! I'm always fascinated of how things used to look and talking to folks who grew up here and saw the transition of land to lake.

I know for a fact that if you follow that "river bed" up to Kingwood, you will hit LOTS of dirt on your way around that big bend.

The sandbars have moved around and you now need to hug the north and east sides before you jog left into the san jac river.

So, YES! Only as reference, do not try to drive by these maps.

Navionics depth contours.

Depths are in meters

I use navionics on my cell phone when we are on the boat. GREAT program, and only $12 one time fee for life of the phone.

Even using those maps, to get to Sharkeys from the lake, there is a stretch of 2' deep water you have to go through (0.6 meters). My boat draws 16-18". So assuming the water is "up to level" that would still be a "hit or miss" trip for me.

I would love to be able to get to the restaurants from Deussen Park. I have just failed every time I have tried.

What restaurants and where are they? Only place I know of to get a burger is Lake Houston Marina.

If you look at Wight’s fourth post above (third set of pix - v2011), the restaurants can be seen. Look north of the 1960 bridge and follow the yellow-brick-road to the West fork. As it loops back down toward the SW it stops at the West Lake Houston Pkwy bridge and that white rectangle of buildings to the north is where they are located. There is a boat dock for mooring and a variety of restaurants, all with patios. Enjoy!

Really nice places, too. There is a burger joint called Sharkeys. A couple of italian joints, and a couple of hi-dollar places for steaks, seafood, and wine. There is also a really good taco restaurant at the very end, newest place there, and very good prices. They sell mexican tacos, ceviche, fish tacos, etc.
