See our newsletters, and the press Releases and news. And consider joining the Withlacoochee and Little River Water Trail Committee.

Here’s an excellent picture of the put in by South Georgia Kayak Fishing from January 2011. He wrote the water level was just above 4 feet on the USGS GA 122 gage, and he had to drag his kayak over sandbars below upstream from the bridge. So we can guess 4 feet is probably a minimum water level on the GA 122 gage. National Weather Service Flood Stage is 19 feet, so we’ll definitely want the water level to be lower than that.

Backup in case of low or high water:
