When you need to go fishing

Newnan's Lake

(Alachua County): Newnan’s Lake (5800 acres), designated as a Fish Management Area, is located about two miles east of Gainesville on Highway 20. The lake is surrounded by cypress trees that provide good angling when water levels are high. Sparse areas of emergent grasses, bulrush, and spatterdock (water lilies) are found around the shoreline of Newnans Lake.
Access to Newnans Lake has become more of an issue as water levels continued to drop during the summer months. However, anglers may still be able to target bedding bluegill during the full moon in October around the emergent grasses and bulrush if water levels permit.

Newnans Lake catch Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, Crappie, Bluegill, Redear Sunfish and limited Walleye and Tiger Muskie.

The catfish and bream, and these can be caught year-round in deeper areas of the lake and the lake shoreline. Newnan’s Palm Point has been a hot spot as well. The crappie fishing has been hit-and-miss, but catches in the one to one-and-a-half pound range are common in open water.
