Bartlett’s Ferry Reservoir (Lake Harding) is a Chattahoochee River impoundment located on the Alabama - Georgia state line, east of Opelika, Ala. Constructed by the Georgia Power Company to provide hydroelectric power generation and recreation. Bartlett’s Ferry is not as well known, nor as heavily fished, as its upstream and downstream counterparts, West Point Lake and Lake Eufaula.

Both Alabama and Georgia fishing licenses are recognized for all waters of Bartlett’s Ferry Reservoir. Three public boat ramps are available for access on the Alabama side of the lake. The public ramps are at the Chattahoochee Valley Recreation Park off Lee County Road 380, at Halawakee Creek on Lee County Road 379 and near Bartlett’s Ferry Dam on Lee County Road 334. County Road 334 also provides access to the Sandy Point Recreation Area. With 156 miles of shoreline Lake Harding features several islands, one of the most notable is Houston\'s Island which contains the ruins of an old lake house. Boating can be hazardous during low flows at the upper end of the lake.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 81 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

Lake Harding Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be a new moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
