The Paleoindians were among the first inhabitants to experience the benefits of the Aucilla River over 12,000 years ago. Today, the Aucilla River provides excellent fishing. The black-tinted water of the Aucilla River meanders 89 miles through Florida’s Big Bend region in southeastern Tallahassee. Moss-draped trees and native plants line the river as it carves through swamps and limestone banks. Today, the Aucilla River provides great fishing opportunities for bass, panfish, bowfin and catfish.
The river plays a game of “hide and seek” as it disappears into the ground, resurfacing a couple miles later along the Florida National Scenic Trail. Before emptying into the Gulf of Mexico at Apalachee Bay, the Aucilla River appears in a variety of sinkholes, caves and springs. Its unique geological landscape attracts an abundance of wildlife, enticing many hunters and anglers to the area.
