All lake trips are done in a traditional bass boat with a motor. We don’t offer wade trips on the lake. If you're looking for a float trip, check out our page here. Those are done on rivers with traditional western style drift boats.

Lake Nottely 

Lake Nottely boasts an impressive 106-mile long shoreline. Also known as Nottely Reservoir or Nottely Lake, it’s one of the many reservoirs of the Tennessee Valley Authority. It is a part of both the Chattahoochee and Oconee National Forests.

This reservoir was constructed in 1942 by damming the Nottely River. The average depth is 35 feet. It functions as a natural site and a really great weekend getaway.

Lake Blue Ridge 

We may be biased, but Lake Blue Ridge is one of Georgia’s most pristine and beautiful mountain lakes. Most of the shoreline (~80%) is in the Chattahoochee National Forest. It boasts crystal clear aquamarine waters, and is actually a reservoir. It’s 11 miles long and has 65 miles of shoreline!

This lake was formed by damming the Toccoa River in 1930 with the Blue Ridge Dam. When it was built, it was the largest earthen dam in the Southeast. I was then purchased by the Tennessee Valley Authority for hydroelectric power production. 

This lake is an excellent place to catch incredible trophy smallmouth bass (watch out, they put up a surprising fight), as well as largemouth bass. We fish this lake out of a bass boat with a motor.  

Lake Chatuge

Lake Chatuge is a beautiful reservoir framed by the southern Appalachian Mountains. Like Lake Blue Ridge and Lake Nottely, it is governed by the Tennessee Valley Authority,  

Lake Chatuge lies along the Hiwassee River, and was created by the Chatuge Dam in 1942. It has depths of around 30 feet, but reaches 144 feet by the dam. It boasts 132 miles of shoreline plus an additional 4 miles of island shoreline. It’s really pretty here, and is a big draw for residents and tourists alike as it’s perfect for fishing, swimming, boating, skiing, and camping.
