Guide To Fishing At Lake Seminole
AKA: Seminole Reservoir
A premiere bass fishing lake in a beautiful setting, Lake Seminole aka Jim Woodruff Reservoir has 376 miles of shoreline to fish and explore. These fertile waters covers 37,000 surface acres and provide an ideal location for water sports, boating and fishing.
This reservoir is located in the northwest corner of the state on the Florida-Georgia border at Chattahoochee, FL. Good fishing is available when fishing from a boat, or from the bank. Fish species residing in the reservoir include striped bass, hybrid stripers, catfish, crappie, sunfish, chain pickerel and largemouth bass. Thick aquatic vegetation is a major factor in making the lake so fertile and provides shelter to baitfish and fish alike. Over a dozen boat launch ramps, plus a few primitive launch areas, serve boaters launching canoes, kayaks, pontoon boats, sailboats, pleasure boats and a wide variety of fishing boats including bass boats. A couple marinas, several campgrounds-RV parks, shopping, dining, lodging and other amenities are available at or nearby the lake. Swimming here is discouraged as these waters are inhabited by alligators, and caution is recommended anywhere near the lake water.
