Fishing Bear Creek Reservoir in Georgia

About Bear Creek Reservoir

Bear Creek Reservoir is a relatively new location to enjoy fishing compared to some other lakes in the state.

The 505-acre reservoir results from a joint effort of four counties in the northeast of Georgia to provide a water supply and treatment plant to the surrounding area. The reservoir has 5 billion gallons of volume.

In addition to fishing at the public bank, visitors can enjoy picnicking in the public park and boating. The reservoir provides a list of rules and regulations regarding hours, boating, licenses, and more.

It’s important to know that gas or diesel-powered boats are not permitted, and neither is swimming, as fishing is the main activity on the lake.
