The Satilla River is one of South Georgia’s well kept secrets. One leg of this River begins in Coffee County, south of Douglas Georgia. The other leg begins in Jeff Davis County near Highway 19. The Two meet up South of Highway 301, near Nahunta Georgia. This is one of the most beautiful Rivers left in South Georgia. The tea colored water contrasts with the white sand and meanders through Jeff Davis, Coffee, Appling, Pierce, Brantley, Ware, Camden and Charlton Counties. The Section from Hoboken to Atkinson is Wild and has very little traffic. Most of the Hardwood Bottoms have been cut, but it still is a special place. This river is home to many Birds, Wild Hogs, Turkeys, Deer and countless smaller Animals. Excellent for Wildlife viewing and Photography.
Ocmulgee River:The Ocmulgee River is noted for its tall Corridors and swift current. There are still areas that remain quiet and wild. The River stays relatively clear most of the year and supports large populations of Deer, Duck and Wild Hog along with a variety of Birds. The fishing is excellent, with Red Breast, Crappie, and Channel Catfish. There is a large population of Appaloosa Catfish also. In June of 1932 George W Perry caught the world-record Largemouth Bass in Montgomery Lake in Telfair County, Georgia. The fish weighed 22 1/4 pounds. This record still stands today, but it was tied in 2010. Montgomery Lake was an oxbow lake on the Ocmulgee River.
The Oconee River has been named as an Endangered Place by The Southern Environmental Law Center. It joins the Ocmulgee River to form the Altamaha River just a little piece up river from Towns Bluff Heritage Park, in Hazlehurst.
