Lake Allatoona features 270 miles of shoreline and spans 10,010 acres. Lake Allatoona was formed when the dam was built in 1949 to block water from the Etowah River. The government's intent when forming the lake was to improve flood control, water quality, hydroelectric power generation, recreation and management of fish and wildlife. There are recreational areas near the shoreline, including campgrounds, day use parks, boat launches and marinas.
Largemouth Bass, Striped Bass, Spotted Bass, White Bass, Crappie, Blue Catfish, Channel Catfish, Flathead Catfish, Sunfish, and Walleye are some of the popular catches while fishing Lake Allatoona. Record bass catches from Lake Allatoona include a 42-pound striped bass on February 15, 2002, and a 16-pound, nine-ounce largemouth bass on August 31, 1982. The largest catch that has come from Lake Allatoona is a 52-pound, one-ounce blue catfish on October 27, 2020.
