Orlando Area Lakes and Ponds

Tip of the week 

Topwater early in the morning and later in the evening with heavier streamers being fished around shade and cover is our most common Florida summer pattern. Focusing on lily pads that hold water underneath and are close to a drop-off will be the most productive stretches. Also be on the lookout for flowing water either from canals or drain pipes as these will always hold fish. Plan your fishing around the weather, rain is a guarantee so be safe on the water.

Seven-day forecast 

The water levels have shot up quickly and are really helping the fishing. The rains will continue it looks like a rainy summer is upon us. Peace River and Econ River are above normal (CFM is in the thousands rather than the twenties-very dramatic.) Lake levels continue to rise..
