Chatuge Lake In North Carolina
Boating, camping and fishing.
Come enjoy boating, fishing, water skiing and other water sport activities at Chatuge Lake in the southwest corner of the state, at Hayesville. This is a 7,480-acre lake with excellent amenities to make an outing here a pleasant experience. Boat rentals are available at marinas for power boats, canoes and kayaks. Fishing from shore is also a viable option here, with some day-use areas providing over a mile of shoreline for fishing. With three kinds of bass this is a great destination for bass anglers. Rocky banks, some with stumps and laydowns offer cover to bass. There are also many boat docks which often create ideal hangouts for bass, crappie and sunfish. There are plenty of ledges and submerged humps around the lake for structure fishing, and those located near deeper creek channels often produce fish fairly consistently. Because the lake is located in both Georgia and North Carolina, fishing regulations for both states come into play. Check fishing regulations for specific rules regarding this reservoir, before wetting a line.
