JANESVILLE—Boaters need to take it easy on the Rock River in Rock County.

The Rock County Sheriff's Office on Friday issued a slow/no wake restriction.

Water heights measured at Afton are 6.67 feet. A county ordinance requires a slow/no wake restriction be issued for the river when water heights exceed 6.5 feet at Afton, according to a press release.

The Rock Aqua Jays' Mercury Open Water Ski Show Tournament still is scheduled to go on Saturday, Aaron Schoelzel said Friday night. The group was given permission by Janesville to hold the event despite water heights, Schoelzel said.

The sheriff's office will put up signs at public access points along the river between the Indianford Dam and the West Beloit Rock Townline Road Bridge, the release states.
