The Salt Run is an easy paddle body of water between Anastasia Island and Conch Island, south of the St. Augustine Inlet and dead ends in the Anastasia State Park.The east bank is mostly flats with grass and oyster beds. The west bank is populated with docks up to the State Park. Water depths get to 15-20′ out in the center. The Salt Run is known for its trout fishing, although flounder and reds may also be caught. Care should be taken at low tide. Beware of the oyster beds.
Best Launch spot is the Lighthouse park located adjacent to The St Augustine Lighthouse at 442 Ocean Vista Ave.
Pellicer creek flows from the west of I-95 to the east into the Matanzas river, which is part of the Intracoastal Waterway. You can launch your kayak and fish from Faver Dykes State Park and Princess Place Preserve or from the Intracoastal Waterway off of A1A just north of Marineland. Pellicer Flats is the area at, and south of the mouth. The undisturbed salt marsh portrays one of the most pristine/riverine systems along Florida’s east coast. The creek is one of Florida designated canoe trails. Easy paddling, and kayak beginner friendly, this area is best described as quiet, peaceful, relaxing, and unhurried. Manatee and dolphin sightings are very possible, for all you wildlife watchers, and photographers. Falcons, and eagles return to nest in the preserve each year. There is plenty of water in the creek, just be careful of low tide in the flats. Both fresh water, and salt water, fish can be caught in pellicer creek. Fresh water fish can be caught closer to the headwaters west. Kicked back fishing and kayaking at it’s best.
We rent fishing kayaks to any of the three launches to Pellicer Creek for a $50.00 delivery charge. Launches: There are 3 launches to enter Pellicer Creek or Flats areas for kayak fishing, and they all have safe parking. Fishing Kayaks Rentals
Launch 1 – Faver Dykes State Park entry is $3. This kayak launch is to the western most point to launch on the creek. It is a very long paddle to get to real productive salt water fishing. Favor Dykes State Park is located 15 miles south of St Augustine off US -1 just before I-95. Launch 2 – Princess Place Preserve campgrounds. You can paddle your kayak straight into Pellicer Creek, or take a channel to the right about 50 yards from the launch and paddle to the “flats” side. If you go through the channel, left takes you back towards the creek, right takes you into a flat. IMPORTANT – be sure and call the preserve and check there hours of operation before you go. Entry is free, however they do have a donation box. This is a beautiful place to visit. Launch 3 – Another great kayak launch for Pellicer is on the East side of the ICW just north of Marine Land on A1A. There is a small parking area on the west side of the road. You can launch here and paddle south on the ICW and take the creek west at the second red marker bouy. That will get you into the flats of the creek mouth. Beware launching here at low tide. Several oyster beds.
Vilano is located north of St. Augustine on A1A north of the Vilano Inlet and the Vilano Bridge.
Description: The creek in the Vilano area of the ICW and offers good fishing for reds, trout, and flounder. No real tidal issues. Beautiful view of St Augustine.
Kayak Launch: The best launch for Hospital Creek is the Vilano boat ramp, located at the south west side of the Vilano bridge. There is ample parking and facilities.
Guana Lake extends from the Guana Dam at GTM Reserve north to Six Mile Landing. There is plenty of relatively secure parking at the Six Mile Landing Launch. The deepest water is in the middle of the lake, however the best thing about fishing out of a kayak is you can get into the shallows where boats cannot, just beware of the alligators. Redfish and trout are common catches in Guana. You can fish all the way to the dam which is six miles south or you can go north a short ways where the water is less salty and can catch bass. The lake is an easy paddle.
