The 310-mile-long St. Johns River is Florida's longest river. Its brackish water, a mix of salt and freshwater, is home to abundant wildlife. There are a variety of species of fish and other animals, including alligators, bald eagles, monkeys, and more. But the St. Johns River's most famous residents are the prized trophy largemouth, smallmouth, and striped bass. They are also known as the best bass fishing grounds; The St. Johns River in FL reels in anglers from all over Central Florida, including Daytona Beach, DeLand, DeBary, Deltona, Ocala, and Orlando.
Professional and novice anglers will find the best bass fishing on the St. Johns River and its surrounding freshwater lakes and streams, including Lake George, Suwanee River, Lake Russo, and more.
