Parker’s Cut

Parker's Cut

Parker’s Cut is a great place for fishing, birding or just a peaceful paddle. Put in on the Colorado River near the LCRA sign. Make a short paddle across the river to the earth dam in Parker’s Cut. Stay to the left of the fence as this provides the easiest path for portaging your kayak. The portage is approx 100 yards to the bayous of West Bay. Be aware that the earth dam is public property but all other dry land in this area is private property.

Getting There:

Kayak Portage at Parker's Cut

Land Bridge at Parker’s Cut

From Matagorda drive south on FM 2031 across the bridge. Go past all the houses on the Colorado River. Shortly you will see a pull off on the side of the road just in front of the blue Matagorda LCRA sign.
