Fishing the Ogeechee River is just as fun as pronouncing its name. This blackwater brackish fishery is a constant source of solid fishing action in Georgia and local anglers can find a good bite here year-round. 
 
The river boasts some of the best angling opportunities for a variety of freshwater species. Some of the most sought-after fish include Striped and Largemouth Bass, Catfish, Redbreast Sunfish, and Shad. In deeper parts of the river, especially during colder weather, you can hook some good Crappie, Bluegill, and other Sunfish species.
 
If you head to the Lower Ogeechee River and out toward the ocean, you’ll be able to target even more species. Here, anything from Redfish, Sheepshead, and Black Drum to Cobia and Black Seabass could find their way to your line. Where you decide to go depends on your fishing preferences and appetite.
 
Local guides organize trips to suit every level of angler. This is very convenient if you’re a newcomer and need some advice about how to get to the best spots. Trips range from 4–8 hours, depending on how long you’d like to fish and what you’d like to target.
 
Seeing that the Ogeechee River is over 290 miles long, there are plenty of towns on its banks where you could find a good local guide. The most popular departure points span the area from Morgan's Bridge Boat Ramp in the north to Fort McAllister Boat Ramp at the mouth of the river.
 
Wherever you decide to go, fishing the Ogeechee River is an adventure no passionate angler should miss out on!

January

You can go fishing all year on the Ogeechee, but the action is slowest in winter. You can probably find some Catfish around, because they’re always hungry.

February
The local fishing isn’t at its peak in February, but Crappie like colder waters, so cast your line where there’s some deeper water and chances are, they’ll bite.
March

You can look forward to more fishing opportunities in spring, especially if you go fishing close to the mouth of the river. Redfish, Sheepshead, and Trout are there for the taking, as are Crappie and Sunfish in the upper river.

April

Fishing is picking up all over the river in April. Largemouth Bass are entering the scene, and going after Redbreast and Shad could pay off big time this month.

May

In May, you can enjoy great angling action all over the river. Bass are active and hungry, Catfish follow close behind, and you can also find good-size Shad swimming around.

June

This month is all about Striped Bass. You can hook Stripers all year, but early summer is the best time to hit the water and see how many you can catch in one day.

July

All the fish you could wish for are in the river in July. Redbreast, Bass, Catfish, and Shad are all roaming these waters in search of food. Close to the mouth of the river, anything from Redfish to Sharks is in the cards.

August

It’s hot and humid in Georgia, but that shouldn’t stop you from punching in some fishing time for yourself. Catfish or Bass, Trout or Sheepshead, Redbreast or Bluegill, the choice is yours.

September

Stripers are still the joy of local anglers, and you can hook plenty of Redbreast and Shad, if you know where to look. Come closer to Ossabaw Sound, and you’ll be wrestling Bull Redfish, Cobia, or Black Drum.

October

The change in weather isn’t discouraging the Stripers, so it shouldn’t discourage you. You can fish for a mixed bag in the lower river and have a lot of fun doing it.

November

For a lot of local guides, November is the last month for running charters, so this is your last chance to have a pro take you fishing. On the to-catch list is everything from Striped Bass and Redbreast, to Sheepshead and Sharks.

December

The end of the year usually marks slow fishing days. Still, you could stumble upon a solid Striper Bite, and Sunfish are always there as well. If you want a big Redfish, head to the mouth of the river, close to the Ossabaw Sound.

Shades, a good hat, and sun screen along with a great attitude and remember that even when they are not hitting, it is better than a day in the office.

The experience was fantastic. 1st the live bait had to be caught. Then captain Matt knew where to go to catch fish. We were reeling in as fast as the bait hit the water. Great fishing day.
