MAP: Ozark Scenic Riverways horsepower and canoe restrictions

November 7, 2013 | 6:00 a.m. CST
A new general management plan for the Ozark National Scenic Riverways is tentatively set to be released Friday. If enacted, it would replace the 1984 plan. The current plan restricts the number of canoes and horsepower of motorboats on the Current and Jacks Fork rivers in order to reduce ecological stress. Most sections of the river have horsepower limits. Labeled below are the maximum number of canoes that can be on a certain stretch on a day Friday through Sunday. The plan limits most sections to a fewer number of canoes on weekdays.
