Lake George W. Andrews Professional Review and Guide

"Lake George W. Andrews is a 29-mile long stretch of the Chattahoochee River sandwiched between Lake Walter F. George to the north and Lake Seminole to the south. Although fishing pressure is light, the lake is known to pleasure boaters and water-skiers and its narrow nature can lead to crowded conditions on summer weekends. Fishing early or late in the day will avoid much of the pleasure-boating traffic. The shoreline is largely undeveloped, and access points, while sufficient, are limited. Andrews is very riverine in nature, to the point it should hardly be called a lake.

The lake has no significant area of open water and at least some current is always flowing, so anglers should plan to approach the fishing as they would in any other large river. Largemouth bass in the 6- to 8-pound range are common, and trophies weighing more than 10 pounds are occasionally caught. The light fishing pressure and abundant forage base of threadfin and gizzard shad allow for the growth of the large fish. Largemouth bass make up a great majority of the black bass population. A few spotted bass and shoal bass are likely present, since they are found in the drainage, but neither makes a significant contribution to the angler’s creel. Key species: largemouth bass, bluegill, channel catfish, blue catfish."
