The Neches River in Southeast Texas provides excellent fishing, camping, hiking, and hunting opportunities. According to wikipedia the Neches River is 416 miles long, which is longer than a lot of nations. This wonderful river and its diverse wildlife often go overlooked, which is a shame.
Unlike a lot of other rivers across the nation large portions of the Neches are not controlled by dams which help control flooding. So when Southeast Texas receives a lot of rainfall is is not uncommon for connected sloughs and lowlands to flood. When someone is scouting for a hunting spot they may be disappointed to find an area flooded, but the flood waters may recede in a few days.
