Stretching along more than 25 miles of the AL/GA border, Lake Harding, AKA Bartlett’s Ferry Reservoir is a great place for boating and fishing. Covering 5,800 surface acres, the reservoir is located just west of Blanton Creek Park, GA. There is more than 150 miles of shoreline, much of which is dotted with brush and boat docks, both are favorite hangouts for fish and baitfish. Several boat launch ramps are available in both states for launching all types of boats. Kayaks, canoes and other small craft can be launched from areas with access for shoreline fishing. Bass, striped bass, hybrid strips, perch, catfish, crappie, white bass and sunfish reside here awaiting anglers. In Spring and Fall most fish move shallow, then deeper in summer and winter. Schooling fish like stripers and white bass will roam, following schools of baitfish. It is not unusual to see them rise to the surface in warm water then go very deep in colder months. Campgrounds are available in both GA and AL. The Overbored At Lake Harding Marina offers many boating, fishing and camping supplies and services.
