Fly Fishing Miami and Northern Biscayne Bay, Florida

11/27/18 Fishing Report: (See Fishing Report Archive at bottom of page)
The water is getting cooler with the coming of the winter months. As the water cools the
baitfish become more active. Winds coming from the north and northwest are usually low and
best for fishing the flats. The bay is protected by land. Wind from the opposite direction can
make for a tough day of fishing if they are very strong.

Description of the waters:
Biscayne Bay is the saltwater 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. This system lies within the water of Biscayne National Park. This is the area were the
Florida Keys begin, with no roads and unpopulated islands. It consist mostly of miles of grass
flats separated by channels.
