Fish Talquin

When is the best time?

Whenever Possible!

Lake Talquin is a reservoir nearly 100 years old and is over 8,800 acres in size. Talquin was born when a man-made hydroelectric dam was constructed on the Ochlockonee River. Electricity is no longer generated at the dam. Today’s green energy of choice is solar power. And as a result, the state’s lake management plan is focused 100% on wildlife and outdoor recreation. Water levels remain consistent throughout the day and year. The majority of the shoreline borders picturesque Lake Talquin State Park, and several recreation areas. A few humans and a bunch more migrating birds spend their winters here. Notably bald eagles, white pelicans, and an occasional snowbird.

This is not your typical Florida lake. With a 35’ deep river channel, numerous feeder creeks, lake points, and submerged timber, it is no wonder why Lake Talquin is one of the region’s premier freshwater fisheries. But, in addition to the great bass and renowned crappie fishing, more on that to follow. Simply experiencing the scenery, sounds, and sightings of Florida’s native wildlife makes catching a fish just an added bonus! So whether you invest a little time in the opportunity to Bike-Talquin, Hike-Talquin, Paddle-Talquin, or Fish-Talquin, the adventure and your valuable time will be well spent. Authentic Florida fun, come experience Lake Talquin!
