Fishing is a popular visitor pastime on the Refuge. Almost 5,000 acres of the saltwater Indian River Lagoon is a great place for anglers to try their luck at catching sea trout, red drum, black drum, snook, and tarpon. Bank fishing is available on the Refuge, but the best opportunities are by boat. Boat launch facilities can be found in Sebastian FL, the Wabasso Causeway, and at Sebastian Inlet State Park.
For a great place to reconnect with a favorite childhood activity or to try it for the first time, make plans to fish at a national wildlife refuge soon. Find more information with our on-line Guide to Fishing on National Wildlife Refuges.
