The St. Johns River is not only at the heart of this region, it’s a major source of recreation and for many, that means fishing! The river and its many lakes and tributaries throughout the West Volusia region are well known among fishermen far and wide. Largemouth bass and crappie get top billing, but there’s even more for those who love to cast a line. Bluegill, catfish, redfish, snook, flounder, striped bass and warmouth can also be found. Spring and fall are excellent times to enjoy the variety of fishing and the beautiful waterways and adjacent wildlands of this inland Florida paradise.
