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.
Fishing for bass also has been successful for anglers on Lake Toho, according to the creel census. Fishing has been good 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 have been working well for big bass. Topwater baits and lipless crankbaits should be worked when topwater shad busting feeding activities are observed. For anglers seeking panfish, try both North and South Steer Beaches and Browns Point. Live bait such as crickets and red wigglers are always a good bet to catch fish.
