With only 940 acres, Goat Rock Lake is one of the smallest lakes on the Chattahoochee River and is virtually unknown to all but local anglers. Best way to fish: boat. Situated between Lakes Bartletts Ferry and Oliver, Goat Rock Lake is very riverine in nature. The lake is basically the Chattahoochee River channel with a few flooded backwaters. Goat Rock is one of the oldest hydropower lakes in Georgia. The lake and powerhouse were constructed in 1912 by the Columbus Electric and Power Company and acquired by Georgia Power in 1930. The story behind the lake’s unique name is that a local family once saw a group of goats jumping onto a rock in the river. Unlike its upstream and downstream neighbors, Goat Rock sees little public use. Access on the lake is very limited, and that together with its small size, out-of-the-way location and mostly undeveloped shoreline, make the lake a peaceful summer retreat for anglers. On the Georgia side, access is limited to the privately owned Goat Rock Marina on the lower end of the lake. On the Alabama side, there is a public ramp at Georgia Power’s Sandy Point Recreation Area on the upper end of the lake just downstream of Bartletts Ferry Dam. Key species: largemouth bass, redear sunfish, bluegill, hybrid striped bass, channel catfish.
