Kissimmee water

Post by Keeth1123 »

I was out in the marsh couple weeks ago and water was everywhere. Anyone ride today that can advise if it’s still that way

He's more trouble than you think, he'll kill your sugar, leave you in the drink.

Water has been better for last few months than years past, better hurry though, won't be long before they send it all down river for the d... sugar farmers. We need to get the politicians out of bed with the farmers. Need to quit subsidizing them, take back the glades. I would not care if the price of sugar went up.

Water was good last weekend. Not too high, not too low. Just right to have some fun both in and out of the water.

Nice rig !! I run lake Kissimmee at least once a month from our camp at KLRPOA and have been looking to get a peek at that Ecotec.
On an unrelated note I watched the "Gaurdian of the Glades" episode that was filmed at our airboat launch from camp.
Before I call Bullsh..t on the pythons on Kissimmee has anyone encountered these snakes this far North ?

I saw what appeared to be a rather large snake dead in the dead river area. At first, I thought it was anything other than a snake; but my wife swore it was one. I regret not turning around to look further.
