Lake Georgetown Information:
Lake Georgetown is located on the North Fork of the San Gabriel River. The North Fork flows east across Williamson County to join the Middle and South Forks at Georgetown. The 1,297 acre Lake Georgetown was impounded in 1980. The lake and parks opened to the public in 1981. The lake has a maximum depth of 85 feet. Anglo settlements along the river in the 1800s led to the establishment of four major river crossings which took the names of families living at the sites. The crossings were Booty, Russell (later Jenkins), Box, and Hunt. Booty, Russell and Box Crossings were inundated when the lake was impounded. Lake activities include camping, hiking, boating, fishing and hunting. Volunteer positions are available by calling (512)930-2283. Current Lake Level 
 
San Gabriel River:
The 120 mile San Gabriel River has four forks. The 42 mile long North Fork rises 12 miles north of Burnet, Texas and flows generally southeasterly through Burnet and Williamson Counties to join the South Fork in Georgetown, Texas. Recreational usage is restricted to periods of abundant rainfall because the river usually does not have a steady flow. The Russell Fork rises 6 miles north of Burnet and flows into the North Fork. The Middle Fork rises 5 miles east of Liberty Hill in Williamson County and flows eastward to its mouth on the North Fork, one mile west of IH-35 near the western city limit of Georgetown. The 34 mile long South Fork rises 4 miles east of Burnet. It flows generally eastward through Williamson County to join the North Fork to form the San Gabriel River proper within the city limits of Georgetown. Like the North Fork, recreation usage on the South Fork is restricted to periods of abundant rainfall. Granger Lake and Lake Georgetown are the two Reservoirs located on the San Gabriel River. The 37.5 miles section of the San Gabriel River between Georgetown and Laneport is contained entirely within the boundaries of Williamson County. The width of the river varies from 20 to 40 feet with the water level being rather shallow, especially during dry summer months. However, a minimum flow for recreational use almost always is available and is ideal for inexperienced recreationists; a good entry point for this section of the river is San Gabriel Park at 445 East Morrow. The 37 mile section of the river between Laneport and U.S. 77 flows through portions of Williamson and Milam Counties. Along this section, the river flows fairly deep within its flood plain and the view usually is restricted to the riverbed and steep banks; this portion of the river is feasible for recreational use most of the time. A good entry point for use of this section of the San Gabriel River is the county road crossing off FM 1331 in the town of Laneport. The San Gabriel River joins the Little River in Milam County.
