Choctawhatchee River Fishing

The Choctawhatchee River flows from the Alabama-Florida border south 87 miles into Choctawhatchee Bay in the Gulf of Mexico. The Choctawhatchee River is one of the longest rivers in Florida and features great fishing when the water levels are low. Largemouth Bass, Shellcracker, Bluegill, Sunshine Bass, Crappie, Striped Bass, Bream, Catfish, and Spotted Bass are some of the species you can catch on the Choctawhatchee River. Try using spinnerbaits, crankbaits, live shiners, and artificial worms for successful Largemouth Bass fishing around treetops, snags, and sawgrass flats. Anglers catch good strings of bluegills and shellcrackers on the lower Choctawhatchee River during the spring and summer. Although crickets and earthworms are good panfish baits, fly fishing is exciting during the spring and summer months. Sunshine bass fishing can be spotty in the spring and fall. Use live shad and shadlike artificial lures and fish on the downstream end of the sandbars. The Choctawhatchee River Wildlife Management Area is located along 30 miles of the Choctawhatchee River and features over 57,000 acres of floodplain forests and wildlife. Water levels can change often on the Choctawhatchee River so make sure to check them before heading out.
