Idle speed, no wake zone temporarily in effect for a portion of the upper Withlacoochee River

A temporary idle-speed, no-wake zone has been enacted for the portion of the Withlacoochee River between the Interstate-75 Bridge at Silver Lake to the railroad bridge located just east of U.S. 301.

Higher-than-normal water levels in the river caused the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to put the temporary zone in place for boating-safety reasons. There are no other restrictions for the remainder of the river or its tributaries.
