Lake Fishing
Lake Lanier is well known as a productive fishing lake. Many species of fish thrive in the lake. Lake Lanier is best known for its Spotted Bass where catching one weighing 5 pounds or more is not uncommon. Types of fish you will find in the lake are Spotted Bass, Striped Bass, White Bass, Crappie, Large Mouth Bass, Brim, Catfish (several species), Walleye, Carp, Long Nose Gar and multiple species of bait fish. The lake has approximately 39,000 surface acres of water at its full level. Although there is little natural cover in the top 1/3 of the lake due to tree clearing during construction, there are trees left standing in the lower portions of the lake as well as brush piles, drop-offs, submerged humps, and rock outcroppings in shallower areas. The Corps of Engineers, in conjunction with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources actively manages fish habitat on Lake Lanier.
