    Hey guys, I just moved here from Denver, CO where I've resided for the past 10 years. Before moving to Colorado, I grew up in Kentucky and had grown to love catfishing. Unfortunately Colorado doesn't have a whole lot of cats. Anyhow, now I'm back in catfish country and will be hitting the waters soon. Hopefully things will start to cool down a bit and get the fish biting. Oh yeah, and for my question: I am planning on going fishing/camping next weekend at Lake Oconee and needed any help I could get on which campsite to stay at and where to fish on the lake. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    See ya on the water!

    Steve

    Welcome to GA and the BOC Steve. I've never fished Oconee but if I did I would try the upper end of the lake in the Apalachee or Oconee River arms of the lake. I've heard the're are some nice sized fish in that lake, so good luck.
