Lake Parrish is world famous for its Bass and Crappie fishing among other species of freshwater fish. It has been closed to the public since September 11, 2001. Lucky for us/you FPL has decided to open it 3 times a year for events to help benefit the United Way of South Sarasota County, United Way Suncoast, and the United Way of Manatee County.
Tournament Dates (Only 2 dates in 2016!)
Locals and folks within a 100 mile radius remember the unbelievable times that they used to have fishing Lake Parrish. And it is now through these United Way sponsored tournaments only that you can fish Lake Parrish.
Please remember that it is privilege that we are able to fish this lake. There is a set of rules that have been put in place by FPL which can be found on this site. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with them.
