Canal shoreline fishing -West Palm Beach

Recommended Posts

Any good canals in West Palm Beach area with shoreline fishing access?  I had a great place on the south west corner of the Turnpike and Lake Worth Rd, but it’s been replaced with new development.  My access is gone now, like a few other areas I knew about.  

 

Wish Palm Beach would make canals of certain sizes or larger with public access on the easement and service roads.  Make mini parks or walking and biking trails out of them.  Developers put up privacy walls along these areas but then gates and/or no trespassing signs goes up along the canals.  A lot of places in Ft Lauderdale, sunrise, Davie, etc, all make parks out of them.  Wish Palm Beach would also.  So much water in S Florida with so very little access to any of it.  You would have to row for Many miles if you try to get to some of these areas by kayak.  Several other areas you could pull off the road and fish or walk it.  But as traffic has increased, guard rails goes up followed by no parking signs.

Find bodies of water with commercial and industrial property adjacent.  Residential properties are less likely to allow access.  People get nervous with strangers around.  There is water all over the place, just research the area.  Start on google earth and then on foot from there.  Lots of water bodies along the turnpike, with joining access roads.  You have to be an explorer.

Thanks.  Haven’t tried industrial.  Commercial is mostly no even if I do buy stuff.  They say parking is premium.  Spent many hours on Google Earth.  How I found the places I go to now.  But they are all under development now.  I still have one place left!  Today, I seen heavy machinery out on the north west TP dredging it out (between Boyton and Lake Worth).  Have to find where the fish are moving to.  It was convienent since it was 10min from my house.  Nice to blow off an hour or so playing around.

 

Spend a lot of time at Osborne since it shoreline friendly.  Just looking for more places, kind of tired of the same place all the time.  May just have to bite the bullet and get a kayak or small boat for the glades.  But requires a new car also.

You should look more west.  I live in Loxahatchee and nearly all of the canals are accessible.  The Commons is a public park in Royal Palm that also has nice bass.
