Spreading over 8,515 acres, this Flint River impoundment is owned and operated by the Crisp County Power Commission. In the summer of 1994, floodwaters breached its dam. Once repairs were made though, the fishing quickly rebounded and Blackshear is a favorite destination with anglers in southwest Georgia. Lake Blackshear was constructed by the Crisp County Power Commission in 1930 using private funding. Not only is it a large reservoir owned by a county commission and the only major reservoir in Georgia ever to have its dam breached, but the lake also has three large springs set aside part of the year for fish refuges. In an attempt to restore them to their native range, Lake Blackshear receives annual stockings of Gulf Coast-strain striped bass. The springs are summertime refuges for these coolwater-loving fish. The area around each spring is closed to all fishing from May 1 to October 31. Key species: largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, redear sunfish, channel catfish.
