Escambia River Fishing

The Escambia River is a 92 mile river that begins in southern Alabama and flows south into Pensacola Bay. The Escambia River is 54 miles long in Florida and features great fishing for many species. For successful Largemouth Bass fishing on the Escambia River try topwater baits in the morning and switch to crankbaits and spinnerbaits in the afternoon/evening. The Escambia River also has good fishing for; Bluegill, Shellcracker, Sunshine Bass, Spotted Bass, Spotted Sunfish, Shadow Bass, Black Crappie, Chain Pickerel, Catfish, and Warmouth. Bluegill and shellcracker fishing is best in the spring near the delta area using earthworms. Bass fishing is also good in the delta area in the spring and fall. Use crankbaits for best results, but live shrimp will entice bass to the hook during the summer months in the delta. Sunshine bass fishing is also good in this area during the summer. Sunshine bass hit live shrimp, jigs, and spoons. For speckled perch, try fishing around fallen treetops and sloughs in January and February using live minnows. The lower Escambia River also has fishing for Sheepshead, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout. Water levels can often become high on the upper portion of the Escambia River so always check water levels before heading out.
