Orlando Fishing -Many people do not know that the greater Orlando urban region houses over 60,000 acres of freshwater, providing many exciting angling opportunities for the 2 million local residents and over 40 million yearly visitors from around the world. Florida is the Bass Fishing Capital of the World, and what better gateway to promote our outstanding freshwater resource than centrally located Orlando, Florida.
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation commission’s mission through Fish Orlando is to create, conserve, and promote convenient quality fishing opportunities in the greater Orlando area. To accomplish our mission we practice management strategies based on applied science as well as maintaining elaborate communication with our stakeholders. Because over 90% of those fishing today got started by a family member, Fish Orlando’s marketing slogan is “Bringing Quality Fishing to Families”.
