Metro Atlanta Lakes PDF Print E-mail

Atlanta residents may think that they need to travel to the "big water" lakes an hour or more away in order to find good fishing spots.  You may be surprised to learn that there are dozens of fishing lakes less than an hour's drive from downtown Atlanta, and we give you detailed information on 47 of those lakes. 

If you've ever passed up a quick fishing trip because you had neither the time nor the inclination to commit to a full day of traveling, you'll be happy to learn that there is a whole host of lakes within the counties that comprise Metropolitan Atlanta.  Here on this website we provide all the information you need to plan a quick fishing trip that doesn't require a long drive. Or don't plan -- as close as these lakes are, you can make a spur of the moment decision to grab your rod and your tackle and spend an hour or two fishing after work or relaxing on a weekend morning.

We have tried our best to provide you with accurate up-to-date information on these lakes, but conditions do change. If you find anything that is outdated or incorrect, or if you have additional information to provide, please drop us a note using our contact page.
