The USDA Forest Service’s Lake Winfield Scott is an 18-acre lake at the headwaters of Cooper Creek. Periodically stocked with trout, and surrounded by beautiful scenery, the small lake is popular with anglers, picnickers, and campers. Lake Winfield Scott is completely surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest. Since it is situated high in an undeveloped watershed, the waters in Lake Winfield Scott are usually ultraclear. The sometimes steep shoreline is forested, but there are plenty of openings to fish from, making a boat more of a luxury than a necessity. The Civilian Conservation Corps built the lake in the 1930s and it has been popular ever since. The scenery is outstanding and the lake offers good fishing for both stocked rainbow trout and warm-water species including largemouth bass and sunfish. The Appalachian Trail runs nearby, and two approach trails start at the lake and eventually join the main trail. In addition, a trail circles the lake giving anglers an easy walk from one spot to another. Key species: rainbow trout, largemouth bass, bluegill.
