Default Gwinnett County Parks with Ponds/Lakes

There are so many Gwinnett Parks with lakes/ponds - surely a few of them are fun to fish.

Does anyone ever fish any Gwinnett County Parks?

I've fished Tribble Mill, the smaller lake, a few years back, with some success. Windknot is a Tribble Mill guy too.

Gwinnett Parks & Rec Department has a fine website: http://www.co.gwinnett.ga.us/cgi-bin...peId=536880236
There are county maps pinpointing activities about mid-page on that link.

Beth - Last Saturday water temp was 59f. Bream & small bass were holding in a deeper (~8') channel.

Lenora Park lake has a good warmouth and bluegill population along with some bass. Going to take my 3 yr old grandson there some time real soon. (He got his first fishing pole this week)

I fish 3-4 of them. I was at Collins Hill last week before the rain and caught a few slabs but they were not hitting at all yesterday. If you go to Collins Hill becareful that lake was named SNAKE lake years ago for a reason.

Default Tribble Mill Park

I fish Tribble Mill Park quite a bit. There are not a lot of decent panfish, but there are a lot of nice bass. There are two lakes and one has a boat ramp for boats with no gas motors. I use my float tube on the smaller lake and catch a lot of nice bass. There are a lot of snakes at the park, so be careful and keep an eye open .

The smaller lake has some nice "flats" that are fun to wade to catch some bass. Drop me a PM if you would like anymore details.

Default Good thread !

Snake, you just answered my question - I was wondering if you could put a tube in that lake.

I'd like to go fish Tribble Mill sometime in the tube, or I'll bring the canoe if somebody wants to.

Come on Spring ! and next weekend we go on daylight savings time !

I just saw your post after I posted on the hooch forum.

I went to Tribble Mill Saturday with 1 brown bugger and caught 2 good size bream before I hung my bugger on a log and had to go home. I was mainly out there just to mess around since the Hooch was so muddy, and Tribble Mill is right down the street from my house.

Last summer I saw a few folks wading in about 100 yds from shore, casting over some deeper water. I'm orig. from FL and doing stuff like that in the summer can get you eaten, so it was intriguing to watch.

Might try when the weather warms up and the bass move out from spawn.

I lived in Florida for a while too and the idea of pond fishing in a float tube still gives me the creeps. I feel like gator bait !

I try to walk at Lenora Church 3 evenings a week. There are always people fishing, but I swear I''ve never seen anyone catch anything. I've seen the same faces fishing a few times, so obviously they, at some point, must have caught something.

Thumbs up

I wouldn't mind trying out Tribble Mill from a tube sometime.

3 questions:
-what would be the best way to get there from the Peachtree Corners area
-and do you need fins to get around in the tube?
-when?
