As most people know, Texas is geographically the second largest state in our country. Its immense size means that there’s more to see and do than the average human can imagine. The Lone Star State also holds a few remote, wild, and special places closely to its chest, away from the eyes of the civilized world and known only to a small and devoted group of enthusiasts and conservationists.
The Devils River is one of those wild places. The 100% spring-fed Devils River is located at the convergence of three ecoregions – the Tamaulipan Brush Country, Chihuahuan Desert and Edwards Plateau. It’s a clean, clear 60-mile strip of pristine, limestone-filtered water that cuts through a hostile and extremely remote environment. Formed by a handful of delicate small springs, it’s a life-giving provider located in the middle of an arid desert.

Canoeing the Devils River
“The Devils is one of our last truly wild and pristine rivers left in Texas, and it’s remained that way because of its remoteness and the staunch character of its stewards.”

Catch of the Day
If you’re lucky enough to get the chance, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You’ll get feel for what the great state of Texas was like before it was out, bought, sold and tamed. You’re also guaranteed to get wet, but that’s definitely not a bad thing when the water is from the Devils River.
