Lake Rose is located in Orlando, Florida, a pretty body of water where views of the Everglades are stunning. In fact, it is a prime fishing area for bass and catfish.
The lake is very beautiful, but not all of it allows for fishing in all areas. Along the county property portions, fishing has been banned, as has public access. Permits for any fishing along the lake have to be obtained prior to any fishing and there is no excuse accepted by law enforcement officers for fishing on county land. Fines are heavy, so getting up to the minute advice from city officials is sensible.
Lake Rose may pale by comparison to other spots due to the serious inhibitions regarding fishing. However, the lake is perfectly located for easy hiking along its limited number of trails. The parking area has picnic spots and some boating is allowed. However, no pets are allowed within the lake area without country permission. For photography and wildlife watching, the lake is one of the best locations. Sunsets and sunrises are spectacular. Varied birds and animals have made the lake area their home and there are numerous chances to see them from a safe vantage point.
