Wilderness Waterway Fresh Water

Is there fresh water that can be filtered along the Wilderness Waterway? When I paddled it 25 years ago, I thought the water up by Canepatch seemed fresh. I am wanting to paddle the Wilderness Waterway again and don't want to carry as much water.

Thanks for your input.

Most of the Everglades Wilderness Waterway Trail water is brackish. But near low tide a lot of the interior trail is fairly fresh water. In any case, I would not depend on it and would carry enough water for your whole trip.

Thanks that seems to be the consensus answer. That is what I will do.
