Dryman Bay, covering 169 acres, is a bay situated in Sarasota County, with the associated WBID(s): 1968E, 1968F, 1982A, 1992, 1993.
Dryman Bay is a tiny bay bounded by Little Sarasota Bay, Blackburn Bay, the community of Osprey, and the island of Casey Key. Just to the south is Oscar Sherer State Park and South Creek. An interesting feature is the rotating bridge across the bay at Blackburn Point Road; fishing is popular at the park near the bridge. This bay is part of the Sarasota Bay Estuary Program study area and enjoys the protection of the Outstanding Florida Water designation.
Bay Conditions Reports give a quick assessment of the water quality in a bay during a particular year by examining three important indicators of nutrient pollution: chlorophyll a, nitrogen and phosphorus.
