  Comments: A small gate is the only public access point to Old Newcastle, and it is located at the junction of State Hwy 251 and U.S. Hwy 380. These lakes are aestetically satisfying and receive little fishing pressure. Their small size, variety of cover, and adequate populations of bluegill and largemouth bass make them interesting places to fish, especially with small bass-hunter boats or float tubes. Clear water and abundant vegetation bodes well for surface lures or fly-fishing. Abundance of catfish is unknown. Florida largemouth bass were introduced in 1982.
