Miami's Biscayne Bay and Biscayne National Park, Florida Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
Presentation: There are times where you need to approach fish in stealth mode. This is especially important in slick calm conditions. Slowing down your presentation to reduce the amount of splash your fly makes can make a huge difference. It usually goes two ways, they eat it or swim the other way at light speed. Practice finesse casting in calm conditions, and you'll get more bites on sensitive fish.

Miami Area & Northern Biscayne Bay Description

Biscayne Bay is a large expanse of water that is bounded by Key Biscayne to the north, Key Largo to the south, the mainland of south Miami-Dade county to the west and numerous flats and Keys to the east. The ecosystem lies within the water of Biscayne National Park. This unique geography allows us to fish out of the wind on most days when necessary.

Techniques & Tips

The fishing overall has been steady for the past couple of weeks. The tide is going to be a high incoming in the morning, and coming in hard with the new moon. Permit love this, so keep on a look out for big schools on both sides of the bay.
