A River Runs Through It
The fishing bridge runs over Old River Slough, a tributary of the Sabine River. The upper reaches
of the Sabine River are characterized by sandy bottoms winding through pine forests. Further
south the river flows through cypress and tupelo gum swamps as seen here at Alligator Park.
The fresh water of Old River Slough is a prime location to catch bass.
