A wonderful diversity of fish can be found within the lakes and river of Myakka River State Park. Many visitors enjoy fishing from the park's bridges and platforms, or wading from the shore. There is also a public boat launch for those who prefer to fish further from solid land. Whatever your preferred method, keep in mind that alligators may be found in any body of water in the park, so exercise due caution.
