Florida Fishing Regions

Washington County

Sandhill Ponds
"Pond" in this case is used to describe natural lakes in the area, many of which range in size from 200 to 400 acres. Some of the larger ones include Crystal Lake, Porter Pond, Gap Pond, Hammock and Hamilton ponds, Wages Pond, Dunford Pond, Hicks Pond, Lucas Pond, Pate Pond and Rattlesnake Pond. These lakes are not limited to Washington County, but extend in large numbers into Bay County. Access is largely by ungraded and unmarked sand roads. Can be reached in both Washington and Bay counties off SR 77 between Chipley and Panama City.
