2nd Annual Suwannee River Fishing Expedition

CANCELLED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

Float Plan: Paddlers will Rendezvous at Suwannee River Wayside Park (River Mile 171.0) at 9:00 AM to drop gear and paddle craft. After the gear drop off, several vehicles will be shuttled to Suwannee Springs Park located at 3243 91st Drive, Live Oak, FL 32060 (River Mile 150.0). After several vehicles have been delivered to the Suwannee Springs Park and all paddlers have returned to Wayside Park we will embark on a paddle down the Suwannee River. Paddlers will select camp sites within the public water boundary past Stephen Foster State Park. A sandy point approximately four miles down-river from Wayside Park at Google Maps Coordinates (30.3242827, -82.7887681) may provide an ideal stopping spot to establish camp on the first night. Note, paddlers should carry enough water to see themselves through two full days of paddling or be prepared to purify water for two days.

On day two paddlers will continue down the Suwannee River stopping at the Woods Ferry River Camp (River Mile 159.3 and Google Maps Coordinates 30.3539609, -82.8553978) where they will be able to sleep in screened shelters, have access to bathrooms, electricity and safe potable water. On day three paddlers will depart the Woods Ferry River Camp continuing down the Suwannee River to Suwannee River Park (River Mile 150.0 and Google Maps Coordinates 30.3945615, -82.9342394) easily spotted from the old brick bathhouse that encloses the Suwannee Spring. Paddlers will exit the river at Suwannee Park and drivers who left their car at Suwannee Wayside Park will be shuttled back to their cars. Once all paddlers have returned to Suwannee Park, gear and paddle craft will be stowed, farewells said and paddlers will return home.
