Orlando Fly Fishing
Back Casting In The Lagoons Near Orlando Florida
Sunday June 24, 2018
All you need is and eight weight fly rod and either a floating or intermediate WF fly line and you've got a deadly combination for catching redfish near Orlando, Florida. Fly fishing has become a popular way to pursue shallow water and inshore fishing and Orlando holds some of the best sight fishing for several species of inshore and offshore game fish.
One of the most popular inshore fish to find on Florida's east coast is the eager redfish or channel bass on the Indian River Lagoon system. If you're prepared to make the cast to a feeding red, they'll almost always take the fly and you'll be hooked on these fun and feisty shallow water fish.
"What a thrill it is to see redfish in the clear waters near Orlando and attempt to make a cast and entice one of these extraordinary gamefish into receiving one of my handmade flies. If you get a taker, be prepared for an epic battle with a beautiful saltwater beast!"
- explained this angler after landing his first redfish on fly
During the cooler times of the year when the winds are cooperative and the weather if fair, you'll see schools of redfish lazily swimming along the shorelines and sandbars feeding on crabs and shrimp in the shallow water grass flats on the lagoons east of Orlando. It takes specialized boats and equipment to do locate and stalk these saltwater gamefish and a keen eyed guide to show you where the quarry can be found. Shallow water fishing is often referred to as "Flats Fishing" or "Skinny Water Fishing" by anglers and this part of Florida host some of the best Flats Fishing in the country.
Shallow water boats or "Flats Boats" allow a guide to approach a feeding redfish and his angler to make his presentation with precision and accuracy with the least amount of pretense and profile as stealth is paramount when sneaking up on a tailing or feeding redfish. Making a double haul cast in the 60-70 foot range is pretty mandatory when fly fishing for redfish, super long cast are always profitable for anglers, cut a nicely presented sixty foot cast will usually do the trick.
Orlando's Best Bet for Sea Trout
I'm not the best fly fishing extraordinary, but I love to get out on calm days when there's plenty of redfish around and try my hand at catching redfish east of Orlando in the beautiful clear lagoons. It's so pretty and the if I can't make the cast or get frustrated, my husband is forgiving and allows me to pick up my spinning rod and gain some momentum and confidence back. Fly fishing is not for everyone, but it's a fun way to spend a day when you're visiting our area. Captain Richard has a few nice rods to let you try out or you can simply bring your favorite fly rod in the 7-9 weight category and give it a whirl like me. My favorite redfish flies are the Clouser and the chartreuse Redfish Candy, but redfish will almost take anything you throw at them as long as it's presented well.
If you're coming to our area anytime soon. Please give me a call and set up a trip with us to go fish for spotted sea trout or any other Florida gamefish that we have biting during that time. We'd love to have you!

Where are the Redfish in June?
The redfish in the summer can vary as the temperatures rise and the redfish look for food and comfortable water temperatures. It's also the time of the year with the most pressure on the fish as school is out for summer and every kid and dad is primed to get out on the water. When booking a trip consider going on a weekday when many are working and also be the first one on the water. Generally the mornings are cooler and the fish are more cooperative. As the summer goes into August look for the prespawn and spawn for large spawning reds as they congregate and spawn into September.

June - 2018 Fishing Report
June - 2018 Fishing Forecast
June of 2018 is looking to be a hot summer with hot fishing off of East Central Florida near Cocoa Beach. Orlando visitors should anticipate the warm weather and great fishing that coastal and offshore fishing provides in the warm Atlantic Ocean this time of year. Last year in 2017 we saw many tarpon exceeding 100 pounds caught off the Brevard County beaches along with a good amount of sharks, king mackerel and really big Jack Crevelle that kept things interesting. Looking forward to this year's forecast on the Space Coast remember that the coastal waters along the Atlantic seaboard and Ocean will probably be the most productive fishing during the month of June and as we look in to August the ocean will look to be the most inviting destination for anglers in the heat of the Central Florida Summer.
