Spring has finally arrived! This is a great time of year for seeing the River. The weather is pleasant and the wildlife is plentiful. Capt. Nick just spotted the largest manatee he has seen on the Silver River, and the birds are abundant with migratory birds swelling the normal population. An early departure is best in order to see the River when the wildlife has not yet been disturbed by visitors.

The spring Largemouth Bass bite on the Ocklawaha River is very good right now. For those who are unfamiliar with the area, the Silver and Ocklawaha Rivers converge. Fishing is prohibited on the Silver River, but is much enjoyed on the Ocklawaha.

Until next time…see you on the Rivers!
