Florida Everglades Fly Fishing Peacock Bass (Back Country)

In 1984, after 10 years of study, officials deliberately introduced butterfly peacock bass and speckled peacock bass to the southern region of that state to feed on other non-native species, including the oscar (Astronotus ocellatus), Midas cichlid (Amphilophus citrinellus), and spotted tilapia (Tilapia mariae). The introduction also created additional fishing opportunities for anglers. The butterfly peacock bass has flourished; the speckled peacock bass has not. Therefore, it is now illegal to kill or possess speckled peacock bass in our state. The butterfly peacock bass tends to do well in the canals and fresh waterways throughout Florida.

Because of tropical origins, peacock bass canā€™t tolerate low water temperatures. This has prevented them from becoming expanding outside of Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties. However, reports of them have extended to other counties in Florida like Collier, Lee County, Florida, and Hendry counties.
