I just returned from a short trip to Elberton GA to check out Richard Russell Lake. I spent the better part of two days driving around this lake and saw three boats. I talked to some locals in restaurants and at camp grounds and was told this is OFF SEASON there. Anyone been there? Thinking of buying retirement property in the area.

Been over the mountains on the Richard Russell highway out of Blairsville GA. Never heard of RR lake. Do you know what county it is in? I have a time share in north Ga.

It is in Elberton County GA. It is between Hartwell and Clarks Hill Part of the east side of the lake is in SC. It really looks good and the locals that I talked to make it sound good. The one fellow owns a camp, fishes, guides and formerly fished the big circuits. He said he fishes all year. The largest recorded is over 13# but he said he knows of two that were bigger but not registered. A lot of spots up to 6# and also 3# crappies are not uncommon.
