Fishing tournaments from club level to professional are common on Lake Sinclair, and your best bets are Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Hybrids, Catfish & Striped Bass.

And the best part? The lake level is always full! Electricity is generated by Georgia Power by pumping water from Lake Oconee into Sinclair during the day and in the opposite direction at night (to ensure plenty of flow during peak demand times); since Sinclair is downstream, it must be at full pool to reach the pumps. Lake Sinclair will begin its scheduled homeowner maintenance drawdown on Monday October 26th, 2020. The lake will lower approximately 6” per day until the target level of 335’ M.S.L is reached (5’ below full pool). The lake will then fluctuate between the range of 335’ and 337’ M.S.L. daily until November 29th. Lake levels are dictated by inflows so please be aware that heavy rain events could raise the lake level above this operating range.
