Lake Juliette

Lake Juliette is a small 3,600-acre reservoir in central Georgia about 75 miles south of Atlanta and 17 miles north of Macon that offers good fishing, particularly for largemouth bass and striped bass. Outdoor motors larger than 25 horsepower cannot be operated in Juliette. If you have a boat with a larger motor, you cannot crank the engine even to trailer your boat. Also known as Rum Creek, the lake is co-managed by Georgia Power and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
