Lake Rousseau Fishing Resort

The Hatton Family welcomes you to Lake Rousseau Fishing Resort in sunny Citrus County, Florida! If you love to catch fish (especially big bass) you have found an angler's heaven and a new place to call home. Last year alone, guide reports recorded 90 bass over 10 pounds caught and released in these waters. From the fishing resort ramp or boat docks you can access prime-fishing spots quickly, ensuring that you get more fishing time on the water. Lake Rousseau Fishing Resort provides lodging, RV sites, bait and tackle, a camp store, boat rentals, and boat slips for your convenience. If you need professional guide service, we know some of best guides on the lake.

Launching from the resort, the dam and spillway are short distances by boat. Both areas produce good numbers of largemouth bass, crappie, stumpknockers, bluegill, and catfish. The main Withlacoochee River channel travels through Lake Rousseau from Dunnellon to the spillway. You can navigate the channel upstream to the confluence of the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers, where the crystal clear spring water of the Rainbow River meets the tannic water of the Withlacoochee River. The two rivers feed Lake Rousseau with large amounts of dependable fresh spring water year round, whether rainy or dry.

Two miles down river, you can launch your boat at the spillway and head out to the Gulf of Mexico via either the lower Withlacoochee or the remnants of the cross-Florida barge canal. Saltwater or fresh, we've got it all. The only thing we don't have is No-see-ums!

When on the lake remember: Safety first. Lake Rousseau is one of the few man made lakes in Florida and is full of submerged stumps. These stumps excellent cover for fish, but can be dangerous when struck at speed, so do your traveling in the channel. Whether it's for a day, a week, or the season, you'll be glad you came. Just remember what my Mama always said, "Drive carefully - precious cargo."
