Fort Myers is built on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River, which begins at Lake Okeechobee, and empties into the Gulf of Mexico at Cape Coral next to Fort Myers Beach. The nutrient rich waters provided by this large river system, as well as the many other smaller inlets around makes for some incredibly fertile river fishing as well as saltwater fishing.
