Orange

Swamp-grown small business

The Sabine River is more than just a border between Texas and Louisiana. It is a river filled with a storied past. Every nook and cranny of the waterways and bald cypress trees has a story to tell.

Growing up in Southeast Texas or Louisiana, surrounded by water for a lifetime, you can feel immune to the beauty and danger of these ancient waterways. One business in Orange has been seeking to give residents a new perspective on their backyard and educate both residents and tourists about this unique ecosystem.

Fishing for dollars

Any serious angler is familiar with the Bassmaster Series, and for about a week in June, the fishing tournament again increased the Orange population by thousands. Professional anglers came in early for their practice runs on the Sabine River, along with their teams, families and friends before the event kicked off on Thursday, June 7.
