Anyone know the status of the water levels at the six mile boat ramp on Guana?

Hello Saltlife_Steve and thanks for posting again!!
Sorry, but I do not know that info, but you should be able to contact the Guana Ranger Station down there and get the info you requested. The # is 904-823-4500.

(1) The lady that I spoke with just now at GTMNERR (Guana) was helpful and their # is also 904-823-4500. She said that the Guana Six Mile Entrance at the north end of the lake will be closed to kayaks/canoe fishermen since it WAS duck hunting season, and starting this SAT, 3/15 it will be closed to fishing due to turkey hunting limitations.

(2) The south end of the lake at Guana Dam is open and construction is finished. A very helpful Florida Fish & Wildlife officer I called named Kyle gave me this helpful info.
FF&W is responsible for north of Six Mile Launch and south of the Guana Dam. Their phone # is 904-825-6877. Parking at the dam is on the "honor system" to park there. Correct change of $3 for a lock box and be certain to put your parking pass on your windshield and LOCK YOUR VEHICLE. He also said that as of yesterday, there was a depth of 2.9 feet of water at the dam.

(3) On the South side of the dam is Guana River which you can paddle and/or float down to the ICW. This a TIDAL and can leave you stranded about 30-50 yards south of the dam if you are not careful....Been there and done that!!
Kyle told me that they use the tidal charts for Vilano and you should add or subtract ONE HOUR when they travel up there in their powerboats...GOOD INFO!!
Personally, I have preferred South of the Dam for many years.

(4) Also, the Player's Championship at TPC is THIS WEEKEND and traffic south of JTB Blvd. can be terrible both directions of the course on A1A....
Hope this info is helpful to many in here...it is for me!!

I just looked it up, now I'm curious and might have to take a ride

Fishing and Frogging:
Allowed year round on Lake Ponte Vedra, but only from the Guana Dam to a line 2
miles north of the dam, and on the remainder of Lake Ponte Vedra and the
interior freshwater lakes only from February 10 through November 10
