General Information

Nottely Reservoir lies in the state of Georgia on the southeastern edge of the Tennessee River watershed, nestled in the mountains and valleys of the Chattahoochee National Forest. This mountain lake with deep, clear water is a perfect place for jet ski fun while taking in the surrounding scenic views

Lake Nottely is 20 miles long and has 4,180 surface acres at normal summer pool elevations. Construction of Nottely Dam began in 1941 and was completed in 1942. The dam is 184 feet high and stretches 2,300 feet across the Nottely River. Nottely has a flood-storage capacity of 100,000 acre-feet. Water levels vary by about 32 feet per year with full pool at 1,779 feet.

The Chattahoochee National Forest, which borders a substantial portion of the lake, adds to the scenic quality of the area. Nottely is noted for its black and striped bass, walleye, rainbow trout, and bass which the state of Georgia has stocked to enhance fishing opportunities.

Lake Nottely is located in Union County Georgia, just Northwest of Blairsville.
