Flowing 260 twisting and turning miles to the Atlantic Ocean, the Satilla is a blackwater river completely unimpeded by dams and is considered one of the most natural rivers in Georgia. Although the Satilla is full of fish from start to finish, the section downstream of Waycross is the best for anglers. Upstream of Waycross navigation can be difficult at summer flows. Access on the river is good with many boat ramps scattered along its course. The first European to gaze upon the Satilla was the Spanish explorer DeSoto, but two French explorers, Admiral Gaspard Coligny and Jean Ribult, gave the river its name. The two named the river the Saint Ille, after a river in their homeland. “Saint Ille” was eventually bastardized into “Satilla.” The Satilla is known as a redbreast river. Redbreasts weighing more than a pound are possible. Bluegill are another popular target on the Satilla, and the average fish will measure 7 or 8 inches, with some larger fish possible. Although largemouth bass in the Satilla are overshadowed by the large and abundant sunfish, there are plenty of bass to make for a fun trip. Most fish will measure around 12 inches, with some larger specimens possible. Key species: redbreast sunfish, bluegill, largemouth bass, catfish.
