Guide To Fishing At Lake Eufaula
AKA: Walter F. George Reservoir
Considered a bass anglers paradise, Lake Eufaula, AKA Walter F George Lake, has over 600 miles of shoreline to fish. This fertile, 45,000-acre lake is located in the southwest corner of Georgia along the AL/GA border. Multiple boat launch ramps, the marina, several parks and numerous campgrounds enhance your stay for camping, boating and fishing.
In addition to bass, the lake supports considerable populations of crappie, catfish, hybrid stripers, bluegill and redear sunfish. Boat ramps provide access for pleasure boats, pontoon boats, bass boats and all types of fishing boats. Canoes and kayaks can be portaged from areas of shoreline with access for fishing from the bank. Boat docks and brush are ideal hideouts for bass and sunfish, and the shoreline of Lake Eufaula is dotted with plenty of both. In Spring, bass use this shallow cover for feeding and spawning, then move to outside structure like ledges, points, islands and creek channels. Hybrid striped bass tend to school, following baitfish as they migrate shallower in Spring and Fall then deeper around river channels during winter and summer months. Catfish fishing can be good year round with the best fishing up lake, during the summer.
