Default Anyone in the Athens area looking to fish?

I don't have much expertise to offer, I'm fairly new to fly fishing but I'm fun and looking to tag along with someone who knows the ropes and fishes out of the Athens area!

The lake at Sandy Creek Park up Highway 15 north of town has good bream, bass and crappie also. You need a boat of some kind to fish it (no outboards). The big bream beds are away from the easy to access area. I think you can rent canoes there however. You can catch fish with a float tube working from around the ramp area but you are very limited in the area you can cover.

Thank you for the tip! I wanted to go check out that park anyways, this will give me a good excuse to get out there.

You are not too far from Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center, which has lots of lakes/ponds. Check with the desk to be sure you pay the correct fee.

I'm in the Atlanta area, but I'd be more than willing to meet you at the Chattahoochee or trip up to the Chattooga/Chauga
