Lake Lanier, GA

Notorious for great striped bass fishing, Lake Lanier AKA Lake Sidney Lanier is a favorite for striper anglers. In addition to being a great striper fishery, the lake has healthy populations of catfish, bass, crappie, sunfish, walleye, perch, and gar. It is also stocked with rainbow trout. This 37,000-acre reservoir located in the upper-central portion of the state has almost 700 miles of shoreline and a bunch of islands to fish around. There are areas with public access for fishing from the bank, but the lake is ideal for fishing from a boat. Dozens of boat launch ramps handle pleasure boats, fishing boats and pontoon boats with plenty of parking. Marinas, bait stores, restaurants, camping and lodging options are available to enhance your fishing trip or vacation.
