MICO, Texas -

Kayaking is a great way to enjoy the area's lakes and rivers.

"See the outdoors. Get some exercise. You could do some fishing and see some things that you don't normally see in a boat," said Mike Crandall of Wally's Water Sports.

At Medina Lake, there are all sorts of geological features, such as "the eye of the needle," an open cave that sits about 50 feet above the current waterline that can be viewed and accessed by kayaking to them.

"Caves that were here in the past that the Indians used to live in before there was a lake here," said Crandall.

You are out in the elements so some preparation is involved. You will definitely want to bring sunscreen, lots of water, wear a hat and, you're probably going to to get pretty wet and dirty too.

"If you still want to be hardcore and get out there and do it, there's water to do it in, " said Crandall.

Even if Medina Lake is only at 5 percent of capacity.

"The lake is so deep that 5 percent still leaves quite a bit in here to go out and recreate on," said Crandall.
