About: -Wes Watkins Lake is still a relatively young reservoir. The large areas of
flooded timber found on the lake provide excellent structure for bass and other
fish. According Department officials, Florida largemouth bass have been stocked
the past three years to bolster the trophy bass potential in the lake.
The 1,142-acre lake is operated by
the Pottawatomie Development Authority, which has imposed special fishing
regulations on the lake. All largemouth bass fishing is catch and release only.
