Small Lake Fishing

Lake Russell

This lake offers fishing opportunities for bass, sunfish, catfish and crappie. The Forest Service operates a 41unit campground adjacent to the lake. Although the camping facilities and swimming beach are open only from mid May through October, the lake is accessible by vehicle and open to fishing year round. Outboard motors are not allowed on the lake, but electric motors are permitted. There is a concrete launching ramp.

Nancytown Lake

This is a relatively cold, infertile lake which supports a fair population of bass and bream. The Georgia Game and Fish Division also stocks approximately 2,000 cacheable sized trout into the lake annually during the early spring. It is open to fishing year round. For additional information call the U.S. Forest Service Office in Clarkesville.
