The upper Altamaha below the confluence of the Oconee and Ocmulgee rivers offers good fishing for a variety of species. You should have no problem finding a place to launch your boat in pursuit of monster flathead catfish or hefty largemouth bass. Peaceful, full of fish, and laced with history, the Altamaha River is as close to perfection as one can get. The Altamaha is the largest river of the Georgia coast, and one of few unimpounded rivers left in Georgia. With 137 miles of river downstream of where the Oconee and Ocmulgee meet, the Altamaha is the largest flow found entirely within the Peach State. The fishing for other species, notably redbreast sunfish, has suffered because of the flathead’s predatory nature and booming numbers, but efforts to introduce anglers to flathead fishing have proved successful. Pulling huge flatheads from the Altamaha River’s deep holes has become a favorite south Georgia pastime. Key species: flathead catfish, largemouth bass, redbreast sunfish.
