Discover Alachau County / Gainesville, FL fishing!

The best part about Gainesville fishing is how close the city is to the state’s most famous bass fisheries. Great fishing locations are known for their trophy bass, and consistent numbers are Santa Fe Lake, Orange Lake, Lochloosa Lake, and Rodman Reservoir. These fisheries have heavily vegetated dark waters, an ideal habitat for producing giant largemouth bass in large quantities. Fishing in Gainesville Florida is great throughout the year but the best time is in the spring during the bass spawn. Fish from the bank or dock at Palm Point Nature Park, Lake Santa Fe, Little Lake Santa Fe, Orange Lake and Lochloosa Lake.
