The Wolf River in Shiocton has some moderate flooding Saturday morning. The river is expected to crest Saturday afternoon or early Sunday morning.

The river level is the 2nd highest on record at 14.06 feet. The all time record is 14.1 feet set back on April 1, 1922.

The Outagamie County Sheriff's Office declared Saturday a slow-no wake zone for the navigable water of the Wolf River as part of ordnance 34.25.

The declaration will be in effect from noon Saturday and will remain in effect until the waters of the Wolf River recede to a non-threatening level.

No one is allowed to operate a boat faster than slow-no-wake in the waters of the Wolf River within 500 feet of any permanent building, not including fishing rafts, during this time.
