Lake Blue Ridge

Lake Blue Ridge, a 3,290 acre reservoir on the Toccoa River near Blue Ridge, Georgia. At Lake Blue Ridge you`re likely to encounter bluegill, largemouth bass, white bass, rainbow trout, yellow perch, and walleye (spring to fall – best at night due to the clear water). Visit the GDNR for more fishing tips and for locations of fish attractors to improve your odds (make your kids think you’re a rock star), or ignore if you’re a hardcore sportsman.

Toccoa River

The Tennessee Valley Authority operates the Blue Ridge Dam, so you should check the water release times for safety and to improve your odds of catching some of the cool water fish. Call the TVA 1-800-238-2254 for automated generation schedule before heading out on the Toccoa River below the Lake Blue Ridge dam. Note the river is easily navigated by canoe, tube, or small boat and you can wade in several places. Visit the TVA site for Toccoa River releases and Lake Blue Ridge water levels.
