Fishing in the Loxahatchee River - Jupiter

Posted by Lorea Thomson on Monday, March 28th, 2022 at 6:49pm.

You can fish in the Loxahatchee River. The Loxahatchee River in Jupiter is a wide body of water named from the Native American Seminole word for “river of turtles”. The most popular species caught on the Loxahatchee Riverfront are Snook, Crevalle jack, and Mangrove snapper. Hook and line are the only permissible forms of fishing.

The Loxahatchee River is a 7.6-mile river near the southeast coast of Florida. It is a National Wild and Scenic River, one of only two in the state, and received its federal designation on May 17, 1985. The Loxahatchee River flows out of the Jupiter Inlet and into the Atlantic Ocean.  

Fishing regulations in Florida can change throughout the year. Make sure to check this page before fishing for the most up-to-date rules and regulations for the current season. Local regulations govern when you can fish, the max size of the fish you can keep, how many fish you can keep, and more.

Please see fishing regulations for catching all species as of March 28, 2022, here. Regulations apply to state and adjacent federal waters.  The bag and possession limit for captains and crew on for-hire vessels is zero.
