AKA: Lake Chatuge

Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, channel catfish, black crappie, walleye, bluegill, bream and hybrid striped bass at Chatuge Lake in North Carolina.

With three kinds of bass, Chatuge Lake is a great destination for bass anglers. This is a 7,480-acre lake in the southwest corner of the state with excellent amenities to make an outing here a pleasant experience. Boat rentals are available at marinas for power boats, canoes and kayaks. Fishing from shore is also a viable option here, with some day-use areas providing over a mile of shoreline for fishing. Rocky banks, some with stumps and laydowns offer cover to bass. There are also many boat docks which often create ideal hangouts for bass, crappie and sunfish. There are plenty of ledges and submerged humps around the lake for structure fishing, and those located near deeper creek channels often produce fish fairly consistently. Because the lake is located in both Georgia and North Carolina, fishing regulations for both states come into play. Check fishing regulations for specific rules regarding this reservoir, before wetting a line.
