Lake Rousseau Report
Recent inquires with local anglers have not been that encouraging. Topped out hydrilla in the “backwater” area has made access very difficult. Water levels are up and color is dark like most other regional resources.
An impoundment of the Withlacoochee River, as part of the original Cross Florida Barge Canal project, this large lake is full of cypress trees, hyacinth and pennywort islands and sometimes hydrilla. Abundant cover and structure grow plenty of bluegill, redear sunfish, catfish, black crappie and largemouth bass. The deeper river channel is always good to locate and fish underwater bends. The rest of the lake is referred to as the “flats” or the backwaters.
