Fishing in Orlando

You can not see it from the roads as you drive to the areas resorts and playgrounds but you are surrounded by water. The Upper Kissimmee Basin is inter-connected by a series of canals rich in fishing opportunities.

These waters feed the Kissimmee River, that goes on to form the headwaters of the Kissimmee, Okeechobee and Everglades ecosystem.

---  ---

A total of 15 lakes make up  the chain. The two largest are West Lake Tohopekaliga in Kissimmee and East Lake Tohopekaliga in the nearby community of St. Cloud. commonly referred to as either 'West or East Lake Toho'. A Florida Fishing License is required to fish in either lake.

There are several different types of license available - 'Freshwater' applies to the inland waters and 'Saltwater' for use at the oceans. As most of our coverage will be limited to the inland waters, we will focus our attention here...

A Non-Resident license will currently cost you approximately $16.50, valid for 7-days from the date of issue. Licenses can be purchased at one of the area's fishing facilities or at one of the local department stores e.g. the sporting goods section of Wal-Mart. 

There are also two area marinas- 'Big Toho Marina' in downtown Kissimmee, and 'East Lake Fish Camp' located at the eastern end of Osceola Parkway, on Boggy Creek Road.

Bait is available at either marina and can also be purchased at Wal-Mart.

Please choose a subsection for links to individual locations

Viewer Notes: - For a real area treat, you may also want to make the trek up to nearby Orlando to visit the nearby 'Bass Pro Shops' located at the North end of International Drive. A true 'outdoorsmans' paradise, fishing, camping gear and anything to do with water or the great outdoors can be found here. Big hit with the kids too, with its large 'fresh water' aquarium and lots, and lots of mounted 'North American' animals which all are displayed with identifying markers. Buffalo, Bear, Deer, Elk, Caribou, Moose can all be viewed here just to mention a few...almost an attraction in itself.

To view their location, follow the highlighted link above.
