Lakes Juliette & Jackson, Georgia Two-sided 24″x36″ Waterproof & Tear Resistant Map w/ 10ft Contour Intervals.
Lake Juliette, also known as Rum Creek, is a 3,600 acre Georgia Power Company (GPC) reservoir located 15 miles north of Macon. Impounded in 1980, the lake provides cooling water for the coal fired Plant Scherer electric generating facility. Two boat ramps owned and maintained by GPC are available for public use. The use of outboard motors greater than 25 horsepower is prohibited. Boats with larger outboards may be used, but the outboard must not be operated.
Lake Juliette is characterized by a small watershed, clear water, and extensive aquatic plant beds. The combined result is a relatively infertile reservoir with somewhat smaller sport fish populations than are found on other middle Georgia reservoirs. However, standing timber that remains in coves and main lake areas contribute to the diverse array of habitats that provide varied fishing opportunities. Low fishing pressure and the liberal, no-minimum length limit on largemouth bass offset, to some extent, the lake’s slightly lower productivity. Smaller crowds, an undeveloped shoreline, beautiful scenery, and abundant wildlife should also attract anyone interested in a quality fishing experience.
Lake Jackson, Georgia. Lake Jackson is a 4,750-acre impoundment located in Jasper, Butts, and Newton counties in central Georgia and is owned and operated by Georgia Power Company (GPC). The Alcovy, South, and Yellow Rivers and Tussahaw Creek form Lake Jackson. Waterproof & Tear Resistant!
