Golden Gate Canal Pictures
Welcome to the Golden Gate Canal, centrally located between the pristine beaches of Naples/Marco Island, the Everglades National Park, Big Cypress Preserve, and the Collier-Seminole State Park. If you want to explore southwest Florida fishing, then the Golden Gate canal system is where you can stay close and save time and money.
There are many other lakes in the region, but they are all man-made rock pits or water retention areas for the numerous housing and golf course developments, none similar to the Golden Gate canal system. Most of them are stocked and offer excellent bass, catfish, and panfish fishing. But, many are located on private property, and fishing is usually restricted to residents and their guests. If in doubt, assume the lake is private and ask for permission before wetting your line, but these restrictions are why we service the area with professional guide service with boats and access.
