From the "streams" section on NGTO:


These are small scenic impoundments on small mountain streams. They
may be fished from the bank or from a canoe or float tube. A complete list
of small lakes that are open to the public can be obtained from the
Fisheries Section of the Department of Natural Resources

Dockery Lake - Lumpkin County (off Route 60 north of Dahlonega) -
This scenic three acre lake is stocked every other week during the trout
season, except that stocking is sometimes suspended in August if water
temperatures get unusually high. Fishing is allowed only during the trout
season. The Forest Service operates a campground adjacent to the lake.
It is a very popular area.

Nancytown Lake - Habersham County (Forest Service Road 61, off
U.S. Route 123 east of Cornelia) - This is a three acre lake that has a
good population of bass and breams It is stocked with trout during the
first part of the trout season. Fishing is allowed year around. The Forest
Service operates a campground at nearby Lake Russell, and there is good
stream fishing close by in the Middle Fork of the Broad River.

Lake Winfield Scott - Union County (State Route 180, south of
Blairsville) - Trout are stocked in this 18 acre lake about every other
week during the trout season. There is a Forest Service campground here,
and it is a popular area. The lake also has a limited bass and bream

IN ADDITION - There are MANY semi-private lakes
in some of the resort communities in N. GA like
Bent Tree and Big Canoe - If you know someone
who lives there they can get you a guest pass.
Earlier this year I caught some absolutely massive
fish from the lake at Big Canoe.


> I've heard Lake Chatuge has some lake bred bows and that Lake Russell gets a few washed down trout. Is this true? And are there other GA lakes with trout- big or small? THANKS!
