Lake Details

Summary

What you need to know about fishing Lake Oconee

Lake Oconee is a 19,000-acre reservoir in Georgia with a max depth of over 225 feet and 376 miles of shoreline. The lake is primarily fed by the Oconee and Apalachee Rivers and was created by constructing the Wallace Dam in 1979. Lake Oconee is rated as a top bass lake in the state of Georgia, is easy to access near I-20, and offers great amenities for lodging and family vacations. Top targeted species in the lake include largemouth and striped bass, crappie, and catfish. Panfish and white bass are also present in the lake. Spring and spawn bass can be found near rip-rap, shallow ledges, and docks but move to deeper points as the summer warms the water. During the spring months largemouth can be caught using slow retrieve spinner baits and crank baits. Depth finders are very useful at located striped bass schools throughout the year. Crappie fishing can be hot all year round where they suspend on submerged structure. They're commonly caught on dark jigs and crappie soft plastics and live bait with long time trolling or cast and retrieve once you've found the school.
