Lake Eufaula, AKA Walter F George Lake, is great for camping, boating, and fishing with boat launch ramps, the marina, several parks, and campgrounds. It is also a bass anglers’ paradise with over 600 miles of shoreline with a large population of largemouth bass. The lake is also home to hybrid stripers, white crappie, bluegill, flathead catfish, blue catfish, hybrid striped bass, spotted bass and redear sunfish.
On the border of Alabama and Georgia, this 45,000-acre lake is close to the city of Eufaula, Alabama. While many anglers choose to camp near the lake to get an early start, you can also sleep at the local hotel, stock up on supplies, and head out to the lake for a day of fishing. There are public angling piers at Old Creek Town Park and Highland Park for those who like to fish from shore.
For a quieter excursion, head to one of the many public and paid boat launches and motor or paddle out to a secluded island in the middle of the waterway. You can also find a grassy shore to launch your canoe or kayak. Search for a ledge or a creek channel for the best catfish. Look for signs of bass or sunfish in the brush. Where you fish depends on the seasons. Winter and summer, head to the creek, but stick to the river channels in the Spring and Fall.
