"A trip on the Yellow River is like going back in time. Its tall-forested banks, pristine water quality and productive fishing create a place one can go to be completely surrounded by nature. The Yellow River Preserve is one of Florida's most precious contributions it has for its future generations." - Ernie Rivers, River Keeper and Bream Fisherman Associate of Northwest Florida
