Flooding sparks boating restrictions on Suwannee

When Suwannee River floodwaters at Wilcox rose above 9 feet Sunday, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) activated boating restrictions on Zone 4.

This section is from the County Road 340 Bridge at Rock Bluff to 1 mile below the Fowler Bluff Boat Ramp. This 51-mile segment will be an idle-speed, no-wake zone as long as the Suwannee is at 9 feet on the Wilcox gauge, where flood stage is 11 feet.
