Every mile of the Suwannee River in Dixie County offers great fishing opportunities. If trophy bass aren’t striking, probably a bait on bottom will fetch a gorgeous catfish or a cricket will bag a red belly. Some of the best freshwater fishing is among the tributary creeks of the Lower Suwannee. Try Monden and Shingle Creeks.

There was the river: smooth and bottle-glass green, almost a quarter-mile wide. Pine forests and palmettos blanketed both banks. Water lilies bobbed between gnarled cypress knees.
We slipped into the slow current, heading upstream.
“You’ll enjoy it out here,” said Bill Miller, who was driving our rented houseboat. “It’s like nothing you’ve ever imagined.”
He told us to stay in the center of the river, to sniff for oil each time before we turned on the engine, to leave the anchor lights on at night. He told us we’d find big catfish, great swimming and a little restaurant a ways up, if we wanted to get back on land.
He didn’t tell us about the darkness. Or the sturgeon.
