Of all the float trips in the Gulf Coast region, the Styx has some of the most diverse fish and wildlife to be seen. It is a fairly deep river and should be floatable, except for some bottoming out up to I–10, even in late summer. Numerous islands make the river prone to massive logjams, which require portaging. The River Styx has been synonymous with religious beliefs since the dawn of man. It is believed the Styx was the link between the world of the living and the world of the dead. An old “pilot” would ferry humans down the river into what is known as purgatory. How the Styx in Baldwin County received its name is anybody’s guess, but it is far from the river of the dead! The Styx is another example of the dark-water rivers that flow through the Gulf Coast region as they head to the Gulf of Mexico. The Styx, however, shows more signs of wildlife than we’ve seen on other trips. The catfish in the upper portion of this trip are huge. Keep your eyes on the river near your boat to see a wide variety of turtles running on the bottom or plunging into the river from the banks. And hawks and giant heron are not afraid of the passing paddler if you are quiet and patient.
