Perdido River Professional Review and Guide
"The Perdido River demarcates the state line between Alabama and Florida. At the Barrineau Park put-in, the Perdido begins semi-swiftly and continues this way for about 10 miles, where the flow begins to slow slightly. For the final 4 or 5 miles, you must actually use your paddle to propel your boat, for the current is minimal. During the first half of the trip, you’ll have plenty of pebbly white beaches where you can set up camp or romp in the water. Along the route you’ll see lots of NO TRESPASSING signs and signs for hunting camps. Much of the land along the river is private hunting camps. You’ll see a few trailers set up on the larger beaches where hunters spend the night. The final section of the river is popular with anglers, who reel in bass and bream. You’ll see lots of small bayous and feeder streams that can be navigated for short distances. If you paddle into a bayou or stream, many times you’ll get a glimpse of an environment that’s quite different from that of the river itself."
