Lake Bryant Fishing

Lake Bryant is approx 850 acres offering some of the best fishing in Florida, with various fish to catch, including big large-mouth bass, catfish, bluegill, and crappie. There are several boat ramps in the area and are all free of charge, so bring your boat and fishing tackle or use ours but let’s go try to catch a record size bass.

Bryant also has a lot of history; the American Indian canoes were found on the lake by Ed Gallagher (Park Resident) and are now in the local museum on display.

A fishing pier that you can fish from is very convenient and a great place in the evening to watch the sunset.
