Lake Talquin

Located west of Tallahassee, Lake Talquin is a manmade lake by the damming of the Oklockonee river. The 10,000-acre lake offers outstanding freshwater fishing including common species such as largemouth bass, striped bass, speckled perch, bream and catfish. For anglers who don’t have a boat, a small fishing dock is located at the River Bluff area, just west of the 650-foot boardwalk. The dock provides visitors excellent access to fishing from land. Lake Talquin is deep with an average depth of 15 feet and a maximum depth of 40 feet. There are 7 public boat ramps and 5 public fishing piers on the Leon County side of the lake (Hwy 20). On the Gadsden County side, there are 3 public boat ramps and 2 public fishing piers.

After a day on the water, venture into Lake Talquin State Park to enjoy a leisurely walk on the interpretive trail past ravine systems to a bluff overlooking the lake.

The park is an excellent place for wildlife viewing and bird-watching. Wildlife roaming the park includes deer, squirrel, turkey and the occasional bear. Birders are likely to spot bald eagles and osprey soaring high above the lake.


Insider tip: Lake Talquin is nationally known for its high-quality Black Crappie (speckled perch) fishery. The best Black Crappie fishing occurs in cooler months (December through April).
