Positioned on the Chattahoochee River just upstream of West Point Lake, the park has access to species of fish found in the lake, such as largemouth, spotted, hybrid and striped bass, crappie, bluegill, redbreast sunfish, shellcrackers and blue and channel catfish. A notable catch was a 35-pound striped bass caught in 2000. Seven miles of the Chattahoochee River run within the park, and shoreline fishing is at the boat ramp and observation tower. Anglers may prefer to use boats, canoes or kayaks. Fishing is best when the river is running at a lower level. Targeting structures such as downed trees along the shore is a good option.
