Where to Fish in Steinhatchee

Steinhatchee is actually well-known for its fishing opportunities – we’re full of incredible spots to fish in both the shallows and off-shore. There’s fantastic saltwater and freshwater fishing and a huge variety of fish and shellfish. 

The Steinhatchee River, accessible from Coastal RV, is a great place for laid-back fishing. You can catch mackerel, trout, and red drum in the Steinhatchee. 

Other great places to fish include the shallow flats, Dallas Creek, and Deadman’s Bay.

Visit one of the local fishing shops at the marina – we recommend Steinhatchee River Club! – to get up-to-date information about where to fish in Steinhatchee and where the current fishing hotspots are. You can also book a boat at Sea Hag Marina to head out for a fishing tour in Steinhatchee. 

You can even organize a kayak fishing trip if you’re feeling up for an adventure. 

What Kind of Fish Can You Catch in Steinhatchee?

Steinhatchee fishing opportunities are absolutely endless, and you can find a huge variety of fish here. Local species include grouper, snapper, trout, mackerel, blues, and more. There’s also some of the best scalloping in the world – read all about it here

Fish species vary by month because of the weather patterns and warming/cooling waters, so check with one of our local fishing shops to plan out seasonal catches.

Best Time to Fish in Steinhatchee?

Fishing is actually incredible year-round thanks to the weather patterns here in Florida. But the best time of year to fish in Steinhatchee is fall, when the fish are no longer driven further from the coast by warm waters. 

As fish return to the shallows there’s an abundance of opportunities to catch trout, mackerel, and more!

There are new owners who are redoing every thing. Beautiful walking trails and wildlife on the Steinhatchee River. 10 minutes to the Gulf of Mexico. Should be renovated completely for next years scallop season.

I can’t say enough praise for this wonderful place and most especially, the good lady who runs it. I’m beyond grateful to have been able to come here during a cold, rainy spell and been able to have a shelter for me, my tent and my dog.

For what it is it is nice. Definitely not a high end place and for RVs only it appears. Not really near much other than a gas station. A beach is 28 miles and the next town kind of thing is 10. There is a dinner across the street a allot of wilderness.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! This campground is super quiet, the people that are there are so nice, it’s a small town basically, least by the campground. There’s a gas station right at the corner, which carries most essentials. Kids may not enjoy this place, simply because not alot of people are there, but if your looking for quiet.. this is it

A great place to camp, to check out a great town. Located is this old Florida fishing town . Drop off the camper and go explore the campground, and everything the town has to offer. Some great local dining, fishing, boating. Most places close on the early in this laid back little town though.
