Fish and Fishing in the Chattahoochee River
The Chattahoochee River forms the southeastern border of Alabama, separating Alabama and Georgia. The Chattahoochee River is divided in this stretch by a series of dams. The northern end of the Chattahoochee River in Alabama is West Point Reservoir, a Corps of Engineers impoundment. On its southern journey, the river is divided by a number of smaller dams including Georgia Power Company"s Lake Harding or Bartlett's Ferry before it reaches Lake Eufaula. Below Lake Eufaula, the Chattahoochee is free-flowing as a border of Alabama, but the Chattahoochee River is impounded before it reaches the Gulf of Mexico at Lake Seminole in Georgia and Florida. A special reciprocal agreement between Alabama and Georgia set the limits on the fish that can be taken on the Alabama portion of the Chattahoochee River.
