Pretty low at Hagan Bridge, the start of the WWALS outing down the Withlacoochee River to Franklinville, February 2, 2018.
I took these pictures Saturday a week ago, November 26, 2017, when the Skipper Bridge gauge read 1.85 feet (122.15 NAVD88).
Today, Sunday December 3, 2017, it reads 1.67 feet (121.97 NAVD88). NWS Low Stage is 122.1 NAVD88 (1.8 feet), so you can imagine today would not be a good day to paddle. You might as well walk.
However, late December through April is normally the rainy season, so we will probably see water levels rise plenty before February 2, 2018.

And if we don’t get enough rain, that’s why we have backups scheduled for each outing, on a lake or pond or downstream.
