The Nature Coast is the area from St. Joseph
Sound in Pasco county, up the gulf coast to
Ochlockonee Bay in Wakulla county. Along this
stretch of coastline, crystal clear spring fed rivers
flow into beautiful salt marshes dotted with
mangroves. The coast is also dotted with many
wildlife refuges that hold an abundance of fish and
bird species. The southern parts of this pristine
unspoiled coast, including Tarpon Springs,
Chassahowitzka, and Homosassa,are only about a 40
minute drive from the bustling city of Tampa. The
Northern area can be accessed from Gainsville or Ocala.
This area is a wonderful place to escape the busy, urban
areas and visit old Florida. A shallow draft skiff is needed
to reach much of the area's best fishing. Fly fishing
redfish, trout, and the occasional monster snook is the
way to go. Tarpon also Migrate through the waters along
the Nature Coast during the spring and summer months.
Let us create a custom fly fishing charter for you today.
Tampa Bay has become a fantastic fishery thanks to extreme
conservation measures and fish stocking programs. There are
great opportunities to sight cast for redfish and tarpon in clear
water. Fly fishing Tampa bay is a great way to experience it. You
can pluck away at the mangroves and small creeks while fly fishing
for snook, or work the grass flats for trout and other species with
jigs. The variety of fish is unbelievable, and ways to catch them
are almost limitless. Tampa Bay has a great fishery year round.
Fly fishing Tarpon happens March - August, the best time to sight
cast and fly fish for redfish, is fall and winter.
