Anyone know if they allow fishin' at the campgrounds?

Thinking about bringing a couple of poles down for some early morning leisure, but don't want to haul them if I can't use them (i'm flyin in tomorrow).

I hadn't thought of that. It might be something to do to kill a little time on Thursday.

Thanks mom/PJ! Just called the park (had already looked and didn't see anything on the site):

- Pond is catch and release
- River is for dinner

Wish I'd've thought about this before the rest of the gear was shipped down. I'm bringing poles, but wonder what I AM forgetting!

Safe travels to all! Peace!

I've never fished at the park, but the reports have been that the river is ridiculously high and fast right now, so the fishing may be fruitless right now (unless you're tatered).

I guess that means Linnie won't have to worry about gators.

I'd be worried about undertows thejahpaul. Or getting your leg snagged while you were under water and not able to surface.

Yes, I am. You'd never catch me going in a river that was running swift. That's like playing Russian Roulette.

It looks like the Suwanee is about three foot over flood stage at White Springs, which is close to Live Oak. But, it has crested, and should be going down daily. What is cool is that the Suwanee Bass is a specific breed found only in a few river systems, the Suwanee and the Withlacoochee being the main two. It is a frisky yet smaller version of bass, and it does like fast moving water.



As for current conditions, I'm thinking a larger in-line spinner, maybe a Mepps Number 4, or find and eddy and drop a Fluke on a weighted hook, a jig, or smaller crank baits. But, the Wanee camp looks like it is on a good size bend in the river, so you may be able to find some eddies where normal soft baits would work. Remember, "In the Suwannee River, areas north and west of the Suwannee River, and in any tributary river, creek or stream of the Suwannee River: black bass (Including Suwanee bass) less than 12 inches in total length must be released immediately.


If the current is undeirable for lures, bring a chair and a light and put a bait on the bottom for some catfish.

quote:
The Suwannee River is a pristine, black water stream flowing 213 miles in Florida from the swamp-like region at the Georgia border to salt-marsh tidal creeks at the Gulf of Mexico. In between are rocky bluffs and shoal areas in the upper reaches and floodplain cypress tree-hardwood swamp borders, lined with water lilies, in the middle sections. The Santa Fe River is a significant tributary and has abundant spring flow influence, making water clearer, yet more productive for submerged vegetation and fish food organisms.

Although the Suwannee River is not known for trophy largemouth bass, good catch rates can be expected, and quality-sized bass are frequently caught be anglers. Suwannee bass also occur throughout much of the river system, and fish large enough to qualify for Big Catch Suwannee bass can be caught by anglers in the Santa Fe.

Crawfish are the main food item for bass in the whole river system, so anglers should fish accordingly. Plastic worms, lizards, and crawfish; jigs with orange skirts and pork rinds; and metallic crankbaits are all standard lures that catch fish in the river. While the scenery may change every 20 or 30 miles, the key to catching bass is the same. Deep structure or shallow structure with deep water near-by is what anglers should always look for. Suwannee bass, more common in Santa Fe River, prefer current where water moves around cypress trees or in mid-river at low water levels. Changing depths will change location of current structure.

The lower Suwannee River moves more slowly and bass utilize shoreline cover of fallen trees and cypress trees on outer bends. Plastic baits, rigged weedless, can catch bass in the pads of inside shallow banks. Live shiners can be fished into brush piles from upstream by letting them float downstream. Small bass will hit a fly or a small floater-diver fished along the bank in the Suwannee.

The estuary is also productive. In the fall when shrimp are in the river, fishing can be outstanding. Tidal creeks are a unique fishing experience.
