No. It used to feed water to the Shavano Hatchery, but they now use water from another source. I heard a rumor a couple years ago there are matching funds available to eventually remove it, but I think the Silver Bullet was the first priority. When I was told this I heard there were long term plans to improve the dam at Granite as well...
I floated through that stretch solo on my SUP at Fibark a couple times and didn't remember the water being that high in the bushes on the island separating the chute from the dam.(think it was 2700-3000)...guess I must have been concentrating pretty hard on not falling off my board...
