For the first time in years, there is no WWALS weekly water quality report this week.
We did not sample yesterday, because:
- After Hurricane Idalia, many roads are still obstructed by downed trees and power lines.
- The Withlacoochee River was in flood, and the Alapaha is heading up there.
For the above reasons, we would not recommend fishing, swimming, or boating this weekend on the Withlacoochee or Alapaha Rivers. The Little River is not in flood, but it’s pretty high and fast. On all three rivers, in addition to the usual flood issues, there are likely to be new deadfalls.
The Santa Fe, Ichetucknee, and Suwannee Rivers were much less affected, so if you want to go out this weekend, please go there.
