Little Lake Harris (Approx. 1300 acres) is directly connected to Lake Harris, with the Howey-in-the-Hills crossover bridge (SR19) serving as its D-mark boundary line, separating the two lakes. The primary inflow to Little Lake Harris is Double Run Creek, located at the southern most point of the lake.

The Harris Chain of Lakes is located primarily in Lake County, Florida, 30 miles northwest of Orlando. It is part of the Oklawaha River basin, a sub-basin of the St. Johns River. It is known by locals as the Harris or Oklawaha Chain of Lakes. The Harris Chain consists of 9 primary (74,000 acres) lakes, all flowing north, and eventually draining into the Atlantic Ocean near Jacksonville, Florida via the St. Johns River.

The Harris Chain was added to the National Bass Fishing Hot Spot List back in the 1980's when it became home for the B.A.S.S Megabucks trail (1986-1990). Pro bass anglers of the day agreed that the chain was the most diverse in structure and vegetation types of any & all that they fished. Kissimmee grasses, maiden cane, bull rushes, cattails, and lily pads are abundant emergent aquatic types of vegetation found throughout the chain.

Bottom growing grass types are Eel, Shrimp, Southern Naiad, Musk, and Coon Tail. Structure such as docks, residential canal systems, dredge areas, and State Game and Fish “Fish Attractors” complement The Harris Chain diversity these pro anglers spoke of.
