Hooking Up Anglers Since 2011.
Lake Oconee is a 19,071-acre lake in Georgia that was created upon completion of the Wallace Dam in 1979. It has 374 miles of shoreline and runs through three counties. Before the reservoir was created, archaeologists detected 3,000 sites here. It would take them until around 2050 to excavate all of them, so construction of the lake couldn't be put off. Archaeologists continue to gradually excavate sites in the lake with artifacts from as much as 10,000 years ago being discovered.
Common catches during Lake Oconee fishing are largemouth bass, blue catfish, channel catfish, striped bass and black crappie. The largest fish caught at Oconee Lake was a 69-pound, seven-ounce blue catfish on September 16, 2016. Another record catch was a 51-pound, 12-ounce flathead catfish on May 11, 2020. Lake Oconee fishing is productive for both offshore and inshore fishing. Other types of fish you can catch here include redbreast sunfish, white crappie, bluegill and white bass.
Because Lake Oconee helps provide power for residents in the area, there is a current through the water. This current encourages fish to be more active. You can catch bass during any season at Lake Oconee. If you're after white bass in particular, March and April are the best months because the white bass are spawning. Summer is the best season for targeting catfish at the lake. If you visit during winter, you are most likely catches are black crappie, striped bass and largemouth bass.
