Best guess on depth if no dredging is done, 6-8 feet at inlet and 8-10 in main body. They are bulk heading the area under the small bridge. The rest of the main body has a gentle slope to shore. Won't be good for stern to without a long gangway but should be able tp put the bow all the way to dry land to hop off. The main body is huge. Should be easy to put 100 plus lake type boats in there.
The boating basin is 11 feet deep right now. Was out there the other day standing in it and it really is deeper than you'd think (more like 15 feet at the opening to the Brazos). They've installed most of the slate pilings along the stadium side, flood control equipment on the Brazos side, and High-cap. water runoff drains all around the lagoon.

Thanks for the accurate info. I didn't want to overstate my guesstimate so I tried to be conservative so nobody runs aground. There is plenty of depth for any boat that will fit under the bridge.
No prob oceanbear. I definitely agree with you about there being plenty of depth and I think the setup we have is going to be perfect. They are going to set up most of the river walk from downtown to the stadium where you can tie-up your boat to the seawall and get out directly onto the sidewalk (An example of this is the sidewalk by Robinson Tower and where the Brazos Queen used to be, you can tie up boats right to the side.) This will keep traffic moving in the middle of the river and allow easy access to walk across the Bridge to the stadium.
Going to be crazy that first game.
and how many boats make it to the low water dam due to coming untied?
