On the north side of metropolitan Atlanta and in the middle of the prime trout fishing water of the Chattahoochee River, Bull Sluice Lake is a series of shallow sloughs that offer good fishing for bream and other warm-water species. Bull Sluice Lake (also known as Morgan Falls Lake or Lake Roswell) is a 500-acre lake upstream of Georgia Power’s small hydroelectric dam on the Chattahoochee River. The dam goes by the name Morgan Falls, hence the confusion about the name of the lake. The lake is generally recognized to be the stretch of the Chattahoochee River from Georgia Highway 9 (Roswell Road) downstream to Morgan Falls Dam. Although the lake is just a stretch of the Chattahoochee River and a collection of several shallow sloughs, the fishing here is very different from the rest of the Chattahoochee around Atlanta. Although Bull Sluice Lake has some of Georgia’s most popular trout water both upstream and downstream of it, most of the fishing in the lake is for warm-water species. Bream are probably the best choice, but largemouths better than 8 pounds have also been caught. Key species: bluegill, redear sunfish, largemouth bass.
