Lake Talquin Fishing

Lake Talquin is actually an impoundment in the Ochlockonee River and is known as a strong fishing lake for many species. There is very little vegetation on Lake Talquin but you will find a large amount of logs and tree stumps. Spring is excellent for bluegill and shellcracker fishing using redworms, crickets, or grass shrimp. Also, fly fishing is good for bream during early morning and late afternoon hours. Spring is excellent for bass fishing on Lake Talquin and some good areas for the largemouth bass are the creeks and channels on the upper end of the lake. The best baits are typically crankbaits, plastic worms, and surface lures. Live shiners are good for trophy bass. Although Lake Talquin is not noted for its speck fishing, some good strings are caught during January and February on live minnows. Striped bass fishing is good on Lake Talquin in the spring and fall. Use deep-diving minnow-type lures for best results. In the fall look for diving birds, a sure sign of stripers schooling. The feeding stripers will push the shad to the surface where birds dive for them. Toss a plug into the school and prepare for good action. Lake Talquin features great crappie fishing during the prespawn and spawning times at the beginning of each year. In the summer, largemouth bass fishing is best in the deeper waters using crankbaits or carolina rigs near dropoffs or ledges. All black bass less than 18 inches and crappie less than 10 inches must be released. Lake Talquin has an average depth of 15 feet with a maximum depth of 40 feet. Lake Talquin State Park is located on the shore of Lake Talquin that offers shore fishing and other recreation activities.
