River Access:  Many located along river including:

Near Wauchula on CR 652

River Notes:  Specializing in Largemouth Bass, Shellcracker and Catfish.  Snook and Tarpon also caught.  Bass, snook, and catfish prefer deep holes around tree snags where flow is strong. Tarpon are also caught in the lower Peace River. Bluegill and Shellcracker can be caught with red wigglers and crickets fished near snags. Catfish can be found around snags and in deeper holes, and can be caught using chicken liver, frozen shrimp, and commercial stinkbaits. Saltwater species, such as redfish, spotted sea trout, and tarpon, can be caught regularly in the lower river where it is tidally influenced. Use shrimp, jigs, crabs, and topwater lures near bridges and snags to catch most of these species. The 105-mile long Peace River is one of the longest rivers in Florida.
