Lake Istokpoga Fishing

Lake Istokpoga is the fifth largest lake in Florida and is known for great bass fishing. Lake Istokpoga has been designated as a Fish Management Area and is a shallow lake with an average depth of 5 feet. When bass are done spawning on Lake Istokpoga by early April they can often be caught along weed lines in open water using live shiners. Black Crappie fishing is typically best in the winter months over open water and around vegetation. Bream fishing is outstanding on Lake Istokpoga during the spawning months of late spring and early summer. Use fly rods with poppers and rubber bugs, and live baits such as crickets and worms. A slot limit on Lake Istokpoga requires all bass between 15-24 inches in length must be released. The daily bag limit is 3 bass and only one can be above 24 inches.
