View Full Version : What\'s your favorite Georgia River?

<p>A tough call to name a favorite because they are all great. But so far, I'd have to say the Ocmulgee is my favorite because of its diversity. I like the shoals on the Upper Ocmulgee (even though it has given me trouble in the past... right swampy?) I like the area around Juliette. I still need to fish the stretch below hwy 96 to Hawkinsville... maybe this year. I really like the area around Abbeville. I caught some nice fish down there last fall. </p>

<p>Its hard to beat the lower Flint too but the Ocmulgee is good. I also like the Hooch and some lesser known rivers that are too small and fragile to name.</p>
<p>FF, you should try the section below 96 on the Oc, its beautiful but hard to get access. Here are some pics.</p>

<p>I love the Flint river like no other. From top to bottom, it's one of the most unique rivers in the country. The lower Flint is unique for a river below the fall line. Not many below the fall line rivers have shoals like the lower flint. The sheer beauty of the upper flint is breath taking. Taken as a whole the flint is a real treasure.</p>

Where can you put in on 96 or below? Is there a public access ramp?

I have to agree with SSF.. The Flint is the most beautiful and unspoiled river in the the state.
We are blessed to have such a true Gem in our state..

My favorite would have to be the hooch because you have the option of lakes, river, shoals, etc..also grew up on that river but if I was going to give a favorite based on fishing then it's the Ocmulgee.

Flint River without a doubt

My favorite is the one I am fishing on at that time!

Fond memories of the Ocmulgee growing up, but after fishing with Shoal Tide on the lower Flint... Definitely the FLINT!

I love the flint I've only had the opportunity to fish the upper flint but I hope to change that real soon!

I'd say for the overall river bassin' experience of catching quality fish and enjoying the beauty of a river, the lower Flint River is difficult to top!
