View Full Version : New to the Chestatee

I recently moved to Dahlonega and am going to take my ganoe out on the Chestatee this weekend and look for some striper, crappie and bass. Can anyone give me any tips on the Chestatee? Thanks

Can't offer any help. But hopefully you have good luck on the new location.

I went yesterday just off of 400. Turn right just past bridge on 400 and go straight down dirt road. Where it turns into a foot path you are right at the river. I caught 4 nice spotted bass in about 20 minutes. I was using an ultralight spinning reel with a small blue jig with white skirt. They were biting like crazy but I had to go back to work! There is a launch on 60 just before 400 on the right. You can make it to Lumpkin County Park to take out in 3 to 4 hours. Lumpkin County Park is down Lumpkin County Parkway next to Ford Dealership off 400.
