Fishing - Mistletoe State Park

Mistletoe Logo

Mistletoe is on Georgia’s largest reservoir, 1,920-acre Clarks Hill Lake, with quite a variety of species: largemouth, hybrid and striped bass, channel, blue and flathead catfish, bluegill, shellcrackers, black and white crappie, white and yellow perch, and chain pickerel. Invasive spotted bass are showing up in the lake now, so harvesting this species is encouraged by DNR. The park’s location on the south side of the Big Creek arm is noted as a good area for fishing, and the lake has a reputation for its healthy populations of largemouth, hybrids and stripers, bream and catfish. Angling for crappie, bluegill and shellcrackers is also good, particularly during the spring. The park has three boat ramps and plenty of shore access for fishing. (Information provided by
