Suwannee River

Yesterday, 2/17, I attended several meetings in Fanning Springs. Between the meetings, I went and looked at the Suwannee River to see how high the water level was. It wasn't too bad, though there are reports of reaching near flood stage further up river near Branford. The FWCC has placed an idle speed/no wake zone rule into effect for the time being in the Santa Fe/Ellie Ray area.

Over on the Dixie county side at Joe Anderson park/ramp, the water was up about 4-5 feet above 'normal'.
And the current looked to be moving about 5 mph. Might be fun to paddle down stream with the current, making for a shorter run/time from Fanning to Clay Landing to the south.
