Clear Lake


View Larger Map

A 339-acre downtown Orlando lake just south of the Citrus Bowl (Tinker Field). A GFC boat ramp on Gore Street provides public access. A park adjacent to the ramp has waterfront access for bank anglers. A restoration plan to improve sportfish habitat and populations is nearly complete. Largemouth bass, bluegill, shellcracker, speckled perch, catfish, and sunshine bass are in good supply. The fish population should continue to improve as a result of the restoration program.

Clermont Chain


View Larger Map

The city of Clermont lies along the shore of this 11-lake chain. Lakes range in size from 20 to 3,634 acres, and most are tea-colored. Lake Minneola (1,888 acres), in the center of the chain, is the only lake that normally has clear water. Threadfin shad are a productive bait for bass. Worms, crickets and small spinner baits are good for bluegill and shellcracker. Minnows and jigs are good for speckled perch. Channel catfish are abundant and 20 pounders are not uncommon. An unusual bait for catfish is freshly caught gar, filleted and cut into one-inch cubes and fished near the bottom.

A fishing pier on Lake Minneola provides access to bank anglers. Most of the lakes have fish attractors that are marked with a buoy to indicate the center of the attractor. Public boat ramps are located on Lake Minneola ($5 fee); and on the Palatlakaha River, on Hull Road off C.R. 561A, just upstream of Lake Louisa (3,634 acres). All lakes are Fish Management Areas so a fishing license is required for most anglers; check your Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission Sportfishing Guide and Regulations Summary for rules pertaining to Fish Management Areas.

Lake Rousseau


View Larger Map

Lake Rousseau was formed in the 1920's by the construction of a dam on the Withlacoochee River near Inglis. Although not a physically large body of water, Rousseau takes on a relatively larger dimension due to the boating restrictions one must observe to safely navigate its timber-infested waters.The large population of timber residue also presents extreme boating hazards. There is no location in the lake where it is safe to run above an idle speed. Although the deeper, submerged Withlacoochee River channel is marked and void of standing timber, it contains a significant number of free-floating drift items, many of which are found to be very large and just below the surface. The marked boat-runs found in certain areas off the main river channel are even more dangerous than the main channel, in that the majority of the marker floats have drifted out of position and the supposedly cleared zones are normally clogged with drift. For your safety DO NOT run a boat fast in this lake. There are a few residential canals that were totally man-made and have no timber remains; but, unless you know the area and where it is clear, run your boat accordingly. Despite the hazards in the water, Lake Rousseau is popular to angler's because of its reputation of providing very large bass. The fishing has been very tough for the past couple of months but should return to it's former self when the vegetation grows back.

This 4,163 acre dammed resivior of the Withlacoochee River, supports excellent fishing for bass, shellcracker, warmouth and speckled perch amongst its heavily vegetated banks and waters, which can prove tricky for navigation. If you choose to fish from the bank, areas in the northwest corner on the bypass channel and the area in the southwest sorner by the dam are most productive. The lake is accessible to boaters by either the Withlacoochee river at U.S. Hwy 41 at the bridge or the GFC boat ramp south of C.R. 40 on Bass Lane for access to the western portion of the lake.
