Harris Chain & Lake Apopka Bass Fishing

Epic Bass Fishing conveniently located about 40 minutes Northwest of Orlando!

About 40 minutes northwest of Orlando lies Harris Chain of Lakes. It’s a beautiful, relatively natural collection of water that covers approximately 50,000 acres. As a part of the Ocklawaha River Basin, it’s a main tributary of the St. Johns River which drains, eventually, out to the Atlantic Ocean.

Harris Chain lakes offer up a great variety of water clarity and are extremely fertile for plant growth, offering up great scenic views while you’re reeling in your catches! Even though, it’s featuring a plethora of canals and freshwater springs, the water color is generally pretty stained still in the main lakes.

Lake Apopka is connected through the northshore Apopka/Beauclair canal and lock, and it opens up a vast view with plentiful fishing. This is one of the nine lakes that is all connected through canals and waterways within. A notable Lake Yale is landlocked, but offers up some quality fishing, as well.
