The St. Marys River in Georgia is a popular destination for fishing and hunting enthusiasts in the Okefenokee and Folkston area. The river is known for its abundant species of fish, including freshwater favorites such as bass, catfish, and panfish. Closer to the coast, the river is also home to species such as red drum, spotted seatrout, flounder, and mullet. The area is also a haven for bird-watching, with a diverse range of species including ospreys, bald eagles, and pelicans. Alligators are also commonly found in the river, either basking on its banks or swimming in its waters. The dark color of the water in the St. Mary’s River is due to tannins, which are natural compounds produced by the decomposition of vegetation in the surrounding swamp and marsh habitats. This gives the water a tea-like appearance and helps to maintain the health of the ecosystem by providing a suitable habitat for aquatic plants and animals. If you’re seeking a rustic outdoor experience in a backwoods, blackwater swamp, the St. Mary’s River is a must-visit. In addition, The Okefenokee Swamp Park attracts over 250,000 visitors each year and is a must-visit for anyone seeking a one-of-a-kind experience. Captain Skip is well-versed in the area’s attractions and is always available to offer helpful information and advice. Don’t hesitate to ask!
