Fly Fishing Report for Everglades National Park and Flamingo,
Florida

12/26/18 Fishing Report: (See Fishing Report Archive at bottom of page)
A flow of bait down the coast has kept fish inshore making fishing conditions very good.
Winds are creating a bit of a problem causing water levels to drop. This has stirred up the
snook and bass action as well as tarpon and redfish due to water temps in the 70’s.

Description of the Inshore waters:
The “River of Grass” known as the everglades is over a million acres creating a diverse
ecosystem at the tip of Southern Florida. There is everything from marine areas to pinelands,
hardwood hammocks, sawgrass marshes, and freshwater sloughs. It is a habitat for a large
variety of wading birds and you can also see alligators and crocodile living side by side.
