Smaller than its neighbor Lake Rabun, Lake Seed is nonetheless home to healthy populations of yellow perch, bluegill, red breast sunfish, largemouth bass, and crappie, and occasionally a fortunate angler will land a trophy size walleye. The lake’s access point is a small boat launch on Lake Rabun Road.
Lake Seed has a constant flow of cool water, so the bass like to gather in the shallower, warmer sections of the Lake. On Lake Seed’s thirteen-mile-long shoreline, anglers have success fly fishing, baitcasting, and spinning. Summertime catches are abundant along Lake Seed, and the fish remain in good numbers from July through August. It has several tributary streams which are designated trout streams.
Its pickerel are fond of crayfish and small yellow perch. The trophy walleye are most attracted to live bait. Head up to the main river channel where the water is 30 to 40 feet deep and cast a small crappie jig about halfway down into the water, or fish near grass and other natural landmarks. Lake Seed has a single launching ramp on its east side along Lake Rabun Road.
