April was an active month on the Silver and Ocklawaha Rivers. The wildlife is keeping us fascinated while we watch the mature birds, gators, and other residents feed their young.
April also brought several new guests to the Rivers. Manatees were spotted on a couple of different occasions, and on one trip we sited a new bird, a Yellow Crowned Night Heron. It’s questionable if either will be seen again. Keep us posted if anyone sites the Night Heron or the Manatees.
While the Bass are biting early in the morning, this is a great time of year to go fishing and go on a river tour, something to keep in mind as you make your plans to beat the heat!
May will bring even more boaters out on both the Silver and Ocklawaha Rivers. Early morning departures always give you the best opportunity to have the Rivers practically to yourself.
See you on the Rivers!
