Orlando Area Lakes and Ponds

Tip of the week 

Easy fishing is in the canals between lakes. As it rains here, and not there, the water is flowing between the lakes. Several anglers have reported some of their best days this summer for bass. Classic poppers at sunrise and sunset if you can tolerate the mosquitos. Clousers, olive white or chartreuse and white in size two and larger have been great for bass. Turd burglers can be fished like worms on the bottom for good bass action.. Finally, bream anglers are having the same success. Smaller white clousers with lead eyes or bead eyes for specs. Our tiny size 8 gurgler in chartreuse is catching bluegill. If you see a canal with flowing water, it is a good bet to fish there!

Seven-day forecast 

One of our favorite anglers reports catching big bass on big flies. No better big fly than Choklett's Game Changer in white. Other anglers report catching bass while fishing worm style using the Turd Burgler with long rabbit strip tails. Let the fish take the fly for a few seconds before setting the hook, just like fishing plastic worms. Black and/or purple seem to be best.
