ertile waters and low fishing pressure combine to
make Lake Nottely one of the best bass fishing lakes in
North Georgia. Both 20-acre Lake Trahlyta in Vogel
State Park and its feeder stream, Wolf Creek, are
stocked with rainbow trout from the nearby Chattahoochee
National Fish Hatchery. Warm water species
include largemouth bass and sunfish.
During the winter, fishing and boating are permitted
on 18-acre Lake Winfield Scott, where you’ll find a
paved launch located near the head of the lake. Rock
Creek, downstream from the fish hatchery in Suches,
is regularly stocked with rainbows and is a great access
point for families and junior anglers. Cooper Creek
and Mulky Creek, both within the 1,240-acre Cooper
Creek Recreation Area, are popular spots for both
stocked and wild trout.
The fishing is good for rock and smallmouth bass
as well as rainbow and brown trout at Deep Hole
Recreation Area. A canoe launch provides easy
access to the Toccoa River.
Georgia fishing licenses are available at the Vogel
State Park Visitors Center or Walmart, online at
