Explore the flora and fauna found on the banks of the Nueces River in Live Oak County, Texas, including white tail deer, wild turkey and more. The flora includes flat sedge, cattails, a variety of rush, and bushy blue stem. If you are a fisherman, a canoe or kayak will take you places that a boat cannot reach - and you will discover yellow cats, blue cats, gasper goo, perch and many more.

Sponsored by the George West Chamber of Commerce and found on the Texas Parks and Wildlife website.
