 About Georgia's Lake Sidney Lanier

Lake Sidney Lanier is northeast Georgia's showcase reservoir and legendary home of giant trophy Lake Lanier striped bass and bass. Lake Sidney Lanier is situated between Atlanta, Georgia (an easy 45 minute interstate drive away) and Helen, Georgia (the north Georgia Alpine resort village). Restaurants, hotel accommodations, shopping centers, and many other entertainment attractions are plentiful in the Lake Sidney Lanier area.

Usually Lake Lanier's waters are blue-green and the lake's location near the Blue Ridge Mountains causes the Lake Sidney Lanier terrain to have a rolling foothills-type typography. Filled in 1958, Lake Sidney Lanier covers 40,000 acres; it has lots of scenic coves, points, and tree-covered islands; and the plus-600 mile Lake Sidney Lanier shoreline is punctuated by two picturesque river systems and a number of fish-rich creek arms.

And customers of Harold Nash Lake Lanier Striper & Bass Fishing Guide Service have taken Lake Lanier striped bass over 40 pounds, largemouth bass over 11 pounds, and near State of Georgia record spotted bass over 7 1/2 pounds. And in one day of guided fishing two Harold Nash customers caught 60 Lake Lanier striped bass weighing 760 pounds, a "record for one day of Lake Lanier fishing." And while Lake Sidney Lanier continues to produce an occasional outlandish-sized largemouth, the lake's primary bass species is the hard pulling, aggressive spotted bass. Both spotted bass and largemouth bass can often be found actively feeding with Lanier's big striped bass.

Introduced in 1973, Lake Lanier striped bass are the fast-growing Atlantic variety. Stocked each spring as fingerlings, Lake Lanier striped bass are exceptional gamefish unmatched in power, stamina, and appearance.
