Since impoundment in the mid-1960s, Lake Eufaula (Walter F. George Reservoir) has had a national reputation for excellent largemouth bass fishing and is often called the “Big Bass Capital of the World.” Fishing is available on the refuge year-round. Bank fishing is limited to daytime use only, but there are no time restrictions for boat fishing. Except where noted in the Eufaula NWR Hunting/Fishing Regulations & Permit, state regulations apply. Please carry out all litter, most especially monofilament fishing line, as it can be hazardous to birds and other wildlife.
