A haven for outdoor recreation, Lake Sinclair is a 15,360-acre reservoir in central Georgia at Meriwether. Over 400 miles of picturesque shoreline awaits anglers seeking a variety of fish species. The lake has healthy populations of four species of bass, three species of catfish, two species of crappie, several species of sunfish and both striped bass and hybrid stripers. Most of the shores of Sinclair Lake are lined with homes, however there are public boat launch ramps, parks, campgrounds and other public access areas for fishing from the bank and launching small watercraft like canoes and kayaks. Boat docks surrounding most of the lake are a primary hideout for bass, sunfish and crappie when water temperatures are conducive. Several marinas serve the needs of fishing and pleasure boaters. Lodging, restaurants and shopping are all available at the lake or nearby.
