Lake Fairview is located in the northwestern part of Orlando, and is bordered on three sides by Lee Road, Edgewater Drive, and US Highway 441 (Orange Blossom Trail) which is all in orange County, Florida.
Land use in the vicinity of the 386-acre lake is mostly medium-density residential development, with some high and low density residential and some commercial properties within the watershed. A city park is located at Lake Fairview’s northwest corner as indicated on the map below and is the site of a bathing beach, boat ramp, and other recreational facilities.
Lake Fairview is composed of one large lobe to the north and two substantially smaller ones to the south connected in chain-like fashion by rather narrow canals.
Lake Fairview fishing for largemouth bass can be good at times depending on time of the year and boat traffic. BASS can be caught on many different artificial lures, summer time on black/grape Texas-rigged worms or Senko style baits. Spring time is topwater time, small shad color and style work best. Fish all of your baits on the grassy saddles and points that connect to deep (20’ – 30’) water (Try the saddle between the main lake and the lobe on the east shoreline). Fairview receives heavy Jet Ski traffic, so fish either early in the morning, late into the evening or after dark for best results.
