BUTLER CHAIN OF LAKES

The Butler Chains of lakes (4,927 acres) are all very similar in that they are relatively deep for Florida lakes (20 – 40 foot holes), have abundant submerge vegetation and good largemouth bass fisheries. This 4,720-acre chain is made up of 11 interconnected lakes. Boat access is available only at one county ramp (Lake Isleworth just south of Windermere) and public bank access is almost non-existent. Orange County charges a launch fee at the Lake Isleworth ramp and the ramp is not open after dark.

The R.D. Keene ramp at Lake Isleworth (Butler Chain) costs per day or a year for use of the ramp.
Windermere Chain of lakes is known for its excellent largemouth bass fishing. Most successful bass anglers pay attention to the bottom contours of the lakes offshore structure where 4- to 5-pound bass are commonly produced. Live shiners free-lined over grass edges, humps, ledges, and drop‑offs adjacent to spawning flats is one method to consistently catch quality bass in the winter/spring (Try Lake Butler). Windermere chain also have relatively unknown and unstudied black crappie(speck), bluegill and redear sunfish (shellcracker) populations.

CONWAY CHAIN OF LAKES

Has four interconnected pools or lakes (east, west, middle and south) in the Disney or South Orlando area that are collectively referred to as Lake Conway or the Conway change of lakes. The larger of the lakes, has only two public boat ramps is located off Hoffner Avenue, two blocks east of Orange Avenue (SR 527). Like the Butler Chain, public bank access is, for all practical purposes, non-existent. The chain has nearly 1,800 acres of clear water and hard sand bottom, with beds of peppergrass, eelgrass and hydrilla scattered offshore. Largemouth bass fishing is good in every season, even summer when the bass are often schooling on shad in the open water.

One of Conway’s “claims to fame” is its schooling bass. In fact, schooling activity often seems to be best during pre cold front conditions, and summer feeds with 10 to 15mph winds. Schooling bass can be found generally by just watching for surface activity or by watching birds feeding. Most of the schooling will happen in offshore areas, but points with deep water access are also great areas. Jigging spoons, topwater lures, soft jerkbaits and white spinnerbaits are some of the best choices to catch these schooling bass; however, it is important to remain flexible, because as all bass fishing goes, what’s worked today will often be ignored tomorrow.
