Listing of Fishable Ponds & Lakes in The Villages

Florida is conducive to year-round fishing which makes The Villages a perfect community to offer ample fishing opportunities for those who wish to wet a hook and line. To ensure your fishing experience is enjoyable, it is important to know the rules and regulations for fishing these water bodies. The Village Community Development Districts and the State’s Water Management Districts who oversee and manages these water bodies, which serves several purposes for the community, also provides anglers fishable areas for their recreational enjoyment.

In order to have a healthy and manageable fishery available for anglers the Village Community Development Districts (VCDD) along with the Freshwater Fishing Club has outlined expectations for those anglers wanting to fish the bodies of water within the boundaries of The Villages in accordance with the following conditions:

1. All fishermen are required to comply with federal, state and local laws, statutes and ordinances while fishing within the boundaries of The Villages. (Licenses are required for those 16 years of age or older. No license is required for those Florida residents over 65 with proof of age.) For licensing information visit www.MyFWL.com. Licensing can be purchases at your local Wal-Mart.

2. Fishermen may fish in any lake, canal or stream, whether natural or manmade, which can be reached without crossing over or trespassing upon any privately owned property or golf courses.

3. Fishermen are prohibited to fish in Lake Sumter, Harmeswood or other areas with “No Fishing” signs posted.

4. Any person crossing into jurisdictional wetlands is in volition of state and federal law and may be prosecuted.

5. If you have any questions regarding this policy please call the Recreation Business Office at 753-1716.

The VCDD practices catch and release. Catch and release is defined as “a practice within recreational fishing intended as a technique of conservation. After capture, the fish are unhooked and returned to the water before experiencing serious exhaustion or injury.” This definition goes hand in hand with the core values of The Villages and the VCDD.
