Lake Yonah is the final link in the chain of small hydropower developments in north Georgia. Like its five sister lakes upstream, Lake Yonah offers good fishing for a variety of species and receives relatively little fishing pressure. The Yonah Hydroelectric Plant was completed and placed in operation in 1925. A Tugaloo River impoundment, 325-acre Lake Yonah is the downstream terminus in Georgia Power’s string of north Georgia hydropower lakes. Like most Georgia Power hydro projects in northeast Georgia, the name of the lake comes from Native American language. “Yonah” is a Cherokee word meaning “big black bear.” Below Yonah Dam is the beginning of Lake Hartwell, a sprawling USACE hydropower reservoir. The fishery in Yonah is similar to the lakes above it. The total standing crop of fish in the lake is low compared to the more fertile waters of the Piedmont and Coastal Plain, but there are still plenty of fish to interest the angler, some trophy-sized. The lake gets little fishing pressure, and is a good destination if you want to get off the beaten path but not go to much trouble doing it. Key species: largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, crappie.
