Fishing pier on the river – a Florida freshwater fishing license is recommend. 

The Suwannee is a flowing river and current varies from very swift to gentle current. It is a tea colored water from natural tannins and is home to large alligators-  that being said, we recommend you do not attempt to swim in the river.
