Sighted 2 white cigar shaped craft traveling parallel just above the tree line crossing river

I was sitting at the Trinity River swimming hole below my house when I noticed a white cigar looking craft traveling southward. It exited the tree line into my view about a quarter of a mile away, crossed the river, and disappeared into the tree line on the opposite bank. It was smooth and silent, no fins. I thought it was a government drone plane looking for pot fields.

5 minutes passed then a second craft, same as the first, emerged from the tree line and crossed the river about a quarter of a mile up-stream from where I saw the first. It moved at the same constant speed as the first and had no visible markings either. They seemed to be traveling a parallel path.

I've been looking for an image that matched what I saw that afternoon ever since, but I've had no luck.
