Fish a mountain lake right ... and you'll discover an addictive angle
on bass fishing and panfishing. Clear water, light lines, unexpected fish behavior and unusual water character combine for magic moments. While the spectacular scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains drapes the horizon, a leaping smallmouth bass showers the lake's surface. Feisty spotted bass bore deep into the depths. Largemouths rattle a laydown. And bruiser bluegills, redbreasts and channel catfish bore down for ultralight fun!

Smallmouth bass fishing at Blue Ridge Lake

Lake Blue Ridge ... Georgia's scenic gem, Lake Blue Ridge's bass fishery is dominated by spotted bass and smallmouth bass. This run-of-the-river 3,400-acre impoundment stands on the city limits of Blue Ridge, Georgia. Rocky cover, laydowns and boattdocks abound where spots and smallmouths forage in water deep and shallow, depending on the season. Individual fish average about 2 pounds in weight, but hang onto your rod! Your next hook-up could be a 5-pound beauty! Panfishing targets "pounder" bluegills, big redbreasts, challenging channel cats and powerful white bass.

Lake Chatuge ... Nestled in a valley rimmed with high mountain peaks that spread across the Georgia-North Carolina border, the finger coves and long gravel points of Lake Chatuge offer challenging sites for hooking into the feisty spotted bass. Largemouths and smallmouths have their place here, where this TVA lake wraps itself around the community of Hiawassee, Georgia, but it's the spotted bass -- and lots of them! -- that's king of the 7,700-acre reservoir.

Panfishing targets large bluegills, redbreasts and white bass.



Lake Nantahala smallmouth bassLake Nantahala ... Arguably, the most beautiful lake of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Lake Nantahala sits off the beaten path of many bass fishermen. But the bassin' gang in the southern Appalachians know the 2,700-acre reservoir that feeds one of the region's finest trout fisheries carries a good reputation for it's smallmouth bass fishing. Deep, rocky, full of forage and clear as an aquarium, Lake Nantahala is an ideal environment for growing smallmouth bass (and walleyes, too!) that surprise anglers in both size and strength. Top baits include deep-diving crankbaits and a variety of jigs. Always be on the ready when pulling your favorite bass lure through the depths of Lake Nantahala. It's not unusual for their heavyweight cousins -- the largemouths in the lake -- to swipe your favorite lure away from the maws of a feisty smallmouth.

Panfishing targets the lake's stunning redbreast sunfish.


All trips include transportation to and from locally strategic pick-up points, properly scaled tackle (if needed), a selection of seasonally chosen dry flies and nymphs, soft drinks and bottled water and a selection of photos for your memories. Full-day trips also include a deli-styled lunch.
