Best Fishing Bets
Chain Pickerel, Warmouth, Flier and Bullhead Catfish
Suwannee River Fishing Tips
Catfish - Bullhead fishing should be excellent this year.
Technique - Use worms, chicken livers, dead shrimp and crickets.
Target the bottom, in deep water and along the bank edges.
Pickerel - Expect fair numbers of chain pickerel this year.

Technique - Shallow-running crankbaits like the Rapala Minnow or Rooster Tail are particulary effective.

Target - Fish slack water areas, such as the mouths of oxbow lakes with vegetative cover for higher success.
Other Fish Species - Expect a fair amount of warmouth. Fliers also are available and are the most abundant fish sought by Suwannee anglers.

Technique - Live crawfish are a favorite warmouth bait. For fliers, a favorite artificial bait is the 'yellow sallie.'

Target - Warmouth are distributed throughout the river with a slight increase in number as you travel downstream to Fargo. Target flier year-round in the upper reaches of the river near the Okefenokee Swamp; concentrate efforts in sloughs and backwater areas.
Additional Info
Refer to the USGS gauge located at Fargo, GA when planning your fishing trip. Optimal water levels for fishing are between 3-6 feet of gauge height.
