About Conway Chain of Lakes
About the Conway Chain of Lakes:
The Chain has four interconnected pools or lakes (east, west, middle, and south) in the Disney or South Orlando area that is collectively referred to as Lake Conway or the Conway change of lakes. The larger of the lakes has only two public boat ramps is located off Hoffner Avenue, two blocks east of Orange Avenue (SR 527).
Like the Butler Chain, public bank access is, for all practical purposes, non-existent. The chain has nearly 1,800 acres of clear water and hard sand bottom, with beds of peppergrass, eelgrass and hydrilla scattered offshore. Largemouth bass fishing is good in every season, even summer when the bass is often schooling on shad in the open water.
One of Conway’s “claims to fame” is its schooling bass. In fact, schooling activity often seems to be best during pre cold front conditions, and summer feeds with 10 to 15mph winds. Schooling bass can be found generally by just watching for the surface activity or by watching birds feeding.
Most of the schooling will happen in offshore areas, but points with deep water access are also great areas. Jigging spoons, topwater lures, soft jerk baits, and white spinnerbaits are some of the best choices to catch this schooling bass; however, it is important to remain flexible, because as all bass fishing goes, what’s worked today will often be ignored tomorrow.
