I ‘ve had several sight-seeing tours on the Silver River over the past few weeks. We spotted lots of wildlife including Rhesus Monkeys, Gators, and even a pair of Wood Stork.
Also, one of the rarest sightings I have ever seen on the River. People Fishing! An oversight in the Florida State Legislature left the Silver River open for fishing through the first week of “09, and the few that got wind of it, including myself, took advantage.
Fishing the Silver River. Very controversial subject. I encounter people on both sides of the fence. As far as I am concerned, it’s public lands.
As long as people practice good concervation, there’s no reason these waters can’t be shared by fisherman and sightseer alike.
Remember, let’s all try to get along.
