Read an Excerpt

Fisheating Creek is undoubtedly one of the prettiest streams in Florida. Tea-colored water journeys swiftly through thick cypress swamps and beside hardwood hammocks, opening into small lakes where wildlife abounds. This area, especially the upper creek, is in an area little disturbed by man. The high water mark of the streamshed is now the boundary of a wildlife management area. Wildlife thrives here—turkeys, deer, hogs, alligators aplenty, and more birds than I can identify. In the upper watershed, you have to pass through private land to reach the put-in, therefore, only the state-sanctioned concessionaire operating the waterside campground and livery near Palmdale is allowed to take paddlers upstream. You must contact them to access Fisheating Creek upstream of US 27. Downstream from US 27, paddlers can put-in and head down, or put-in at the public ramp on State Road 76 near Lake Okeechobee and head upstream. It pays to contact the concessionaire before endeavoring in a trip here.
