Don't have a pic. Saw a snake yesterday fishing in the neuse river around ft barnwell. Best pics online match to an eastern garter snake(the back was small hatch type patterned between stripes, not blotch patterned like a water snake), but this one was easily 5' long. It was swimming a creek and climbed a cypress in the creek center. Does anyone have a better fit ID? I took herp in college but don't remember any looking like this one. First one I have seen while fishing, whatever it was.
