Thread: Orlando Area Fishing?

  1. Default Orlando Area Fishing?

    First off, I'm new to the forum and so far I have learned a lot from the many great topics here, so hello. I'm 15 and live in SE PA and I have been fly fishing for about 5 years. This June, my family and I will be going to Orlando for a week. I have been doing some reading and I have decided to try to fish Mosquito Lagoon, but I don't own a boat/kayak so I'm not sure about access. Is the lagoon easily waded? Any good parking/entrance points? After I'm in, what should I be looking for? I have been reading and hear conflicting opinions on this. Of course tailing fish, but are there any subtle areas to look for such as creek beds or grass flats where fish would congregate? Also, is there any type of freshwater fishing for bass or panfish in the area that is worth checking out? I think I'm good with equipment and I'll be bringing: Redington 9' 8wt. with both a floating and intermediate line. I have also heard conflicting opinions on lines. Any suggestions? For freshwater I will bring my Redington 7'6" 4 wt. and use my 8 wt. for bass. Sounds good? Any other help with points I missed would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for everything and I look forward to spending a lot of time on here.

    You can wade and catch fish in Mosquito Lagoon. Check ou this map of the area -

    The Bio Lab Road located along the southwestern shore offers multiple wade access points. The salt is on the east side of the road and there are freshwater marshes on the west side that hold bass, panfish, tarpon, and seatrout, and ladyfish.

    You will only need a floating line with a 9ft leader. I use 15lb bite tippet for reds and trout with 25-30lb for small tarpon. You will need weedless flies for the flats such as bendbacks. Tarpon will eat small white or black weighted streamers.

    You will need to keep your eyes out for gators as they can be plentiful that time of year.
