Fly fishing Everglades National Park

Everglades National Park native the Blue Heron.

Everglades National Park

Based out of Everglades City, Florida in the heart of the 10,000 Islands we have the entire Everglades National Park to poke around and search for fish. With such a large ecosystem we have many different species of fish we can find along with several different ways to target them. Everglades National Park is a sanctuary for growing big fish like Tarpon, Snook and Redfish. We also catch a lot of jacks, mangrove snapper, and trout. Other species are sheepshead, black drum and tripletail. Fly fishing and spin fishing with artificial  lures are the two tackle options with Salty Bird Charters. 

Fly fishing or spin fishing charters are available. 

Gear is provided if needed



Fishing Targets

Tarpon

The fight of a catching a Tarpon.

This is my favorite fish. The Everglades backcountry is a nursery for baby tarpon. We find them in backcountry creeks and bays along with huge fish ready for the annual tarpon migration. Tarpon are the perfect fish for the saltwater angler. They love eating flies, they love to jump and they love to frustrate the best of anglers. 


Snook

Snook Snook Snook!

The Everglades is home to some of the biggest snook anywhere. These incredible fish are smart and can hide in plain sight. One second nothing is there the next they are laying right in front of you. The everglades provides a huge ecosystem and several different fishing opportunities for the beautiful fish.

Redfish

Backcountry Redfish

Most of the Redfish we catch are sight fished in shallow water. We usually find reds cruising mangrove banks or on the edges of oyster beds searching for crabs.
