Lake Tohopekaliga, known to the locals as Lake Toho, is an 18,810-acre lake located southeast of the city of Kissimmee. The lake's Commission-made fish attractors are especially popular fishing areas, and their locations are available on the Lake Toho Fish Attractor Map and at our Interactive Fish Attractor Map.
For more information on Lake Toho or the fish camps in the area, please contact the Kissimmee Fisheries office at 407-846-5191.
Largemouth bass anglers should direct their efforts in and around Goblets Cove, South Steel Beach, Lanier and Browns points, Little Grassy Island, and offshore vegetative communities. Golden shiners worked along the hydrilla holes and edges always work well for big bass. Topwater baits and lipless crankbaits should be worked when topwater shad busting feeding activities are observed. Any area that has moving water after summer afternoon storms should hold fish as well.
For anglers seeking panfish, try both North and South Steer Beaches and Browns Point. Beetle spins and small tube jigs work well. Good concentration of bluegills can usually be found at the man-made attractors scattered around the lake. Look for the fish attractor white buoys. Try casting a cricket or red wiggler around these structures for some good action.
