Walter F. George Lake (Lake Eufaula) is a 45,000 acre lake located on the Chattahoocee River between the states of Alabama and Georgia. This area is rich in history with many nearby historic sites and towns. The lake is nationally known for it's bass and crappie fishing. The lock, located at Ft. Gaines, Georgia, has the second highest drop east of the Mississippi River. Fishing and water recreation opportunities abound. Eufaula National Wildlife Refuge is located on the northern end of the lake offering excellent bird viewing all year. There are both state and Corps of Engineers operated campgrounds and day use parks featuring picnic areas, beaches and boat ramps, among other opportunities.

Lake Eufaula was formed with the construction of the Walter F. George Dam in 1963. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (CE) built the dam to provide flood control, produce hydroelectric power, create a navigable shipping channel and offer recreational opportunities.

The COE manages the lake and its shoreline. A system of buoys and daymarks is in place throughout the lake to mark the main navigable channel. The COE has placed numerous fish attractors in the lake. The attractors provide artificial habitate for fish and are clearly marked with buoys.

Since the lake is a border water, part of it lies in Alabama and part in Georgia, a reciprocal agreement has been reached between the states which allows anyone with a valid fishing license in either state to fish the entire lake. This holds true when on the water but when shore fishing a valid license for the state you are in is required.
