Fishing Orlando, FL in the Spring

Month Avg. Temps °F (Hi/Lo)
March 79° / 57°
April 84° / 63°
May 88° / 69°

In the spring, the fishing is very good here in the Orlando area.  Most of the spawning takes place in the months of January and February, but you can still find some spawning bass in March too.  As the spawn ends, you can still catch a lot of largemouth bass through April and May, but you won’t catch nearly as many of those big females as you will in the month of March.

Fishing Orlando, FL in the Summer

Month Avg. Temps °F (Hi/Lo)
June 91° / 73°
July 92° / 75°
August 91° / 75°

In the summer, it gets hot down here and you will have to deal with a lot of storms that pop up.  These storms usually only last an hour or two, so they don’t wipe out your entire day of fishing, but you do have to pay attention to the radar much more in the summer than the other months here.  The feeding windows are much smaller in the summer as well.  Early in the morning and the evening definitely provide better fishing.

Fishing Orlando, FL in the Fall

Month Avg. Temps °F (Hi/Lo)
September 89° / 74°
October 85° / 68°
November 78° / 59°

The fall can be very good.  As you get into the later part of the fall, air temperatures get a lot more comfortable.  On many of the lakes with good populations of shad, you will see a lot more schooling bass feeding on large schools of shad in the fall.  Hit it right and you can catch a bunch of bass in a hurry.  The bite extends longer into the day in the fall too, however, the better bite is still usually almost always early in the morning and later in the evening.  It is still hurricane season though, so keep an eye out on that before planning a trip here in the fall.

Fishing Orlando, FL in the Winter

Month Avg. Temps °F (Hi/Lo)
December 75° / 55°
January 72° / 51°
February 75° / 54°

The winter is prime time largemouth bass fishing down here.  Air temperatures are comfortable as anglers do well with good numbers of bass and some very big bass as well.  As you get into the month of February, you can start seeing a lot of bass move up onto the beds as well.  February is usually the best month for catching big largemouth bass and many serious anglers will time their trips around the full moon to try to catch the biggest bass of their lives.  If you can get down here in the winter, the fishing can be great all 3 months.  The winter is also a good time for panfish such as bluegill, shell cracker, other sunfish and crappie.
