Fall RV Fishing Expedition to Georgia!

The air is crisp, the temperatures once again bearable and the bright blue waters are calling! It’s time to plan your fall RV fishing expedition to Georgia. The fish are headed back to the surface, so gather your favorite anglers, rent a comfortable RV “fishing cabin” and turn your tires toward the Peach State.

Best Fall Fishing in Georgia
According to Kevin Dallmier, author of Fishing Georgia, autumn fishing is sure to be plentiful and definitely worth getting back out on the water. He especially likes Lake Blue Ridge, located in Chattahoochee National Forest, for snagging smallmouth bass along the shoreline.

Just two hours north of Atlanta near the Tennessee border, Lake Blue Ridge is easily accessible for an exciting weekend of RV camping and lake fishing. Although the Forest Service has closed the campground directly on the lake, there are a number of campgrounds in Chattahoochee National Forest just minutes from the boat launch.

Another Georgia fall fishing spot highly recommended by Dallmier is Allatoona Lake, just thirty miles north of Atlanta. He reports the striper fishing is fine as the temperature drops, especially near the dam. Come prepared with heavy-duty gear if you hope to match wits with an Allatoona striper; according to his report, they’ve hauled in striped bass over thirty pounds there!

McKinney Campground, part of Red Top Mountain State Park, is open year-round for RV campers, and also has a boat launch on Allatoona. Another fisherman-friendly place to park your RV (and launch your boat) is Allatoona Landing Marina and Campground in Cartersville, GA.

So don’t put away that tackle just yet! There’s still time to create new fishing tales and RV camping memories with a trip to Georgia’s premier autumn fishing holes. Our thanks to Kevin Dallmier and GeorgiaSportsmanMag.com for furnishing this information on autumn fishing in the Peach State. We look forward to hearing more about your own trip this Fall to these forest-lined lakes in the heart of North Georgia.
