The last time I counted them all there were about 100 boat ramps on Lanier.

On a random and mysteriously rotating basis, a few launches are close to fishing holes where you are guaranteed to catch your limit of whoppers. Choose wisely or you might get skunked.

Here’s the list, sorted A-Z … until the cycle changes again.

USACE parks reopened, as of March 20, 2019:

  • Balus Creek
  • Bolding Mill
  • Burton Mill
  • Duckett Mill
