A Georgia Power hydropower reservoir, Lake Burton is a deep, infertile impoundment on the Tallulah River in northeast Georgia. Although the lake supports a variety of sport fish, steep shorelines with little underwater cover make Lake Burton challenging angling. Created in 1919 with the construction of 128-foot high Burton Dam, which spans 1,100 feet across the Tallulah River, Lake Burton’s purpose was to meet Georgia’s growing demand for electricity. Burton Dam and its sister dams on the Tallulah River were considered engineering marvels of the time, and are still impressive today. Burton has 2,775 surface acres and 62 miles of shoreline. Like many older reservoirs opened to shoreline development, Lake Burton is almost completely surrounded by lakeshore homes and summer cabins. The beauty of the lake and its deep, clear water makes it a favorite with pleasure boaters. The lake gets very crowded during the summer months, making night-fishing an option that should be strongly considered. Key species: spotted bass, largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, yellow perch.
