The Jewel of the Mountains, Lake Chatuge is one of the most scenic lakes in the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA)
system, was formed in 1942 when the construction on the earth-filled dam was completed. The dam is located off Myers Chapel Road, about 3 miles southeast of Hayesville, at the Barnett Bridge in North Carolina just over the Towns County, GA. line. Chatuge Dam is 144 feet high and stretches 2,850 feet across the Hiwassee River. Chatuge reservoir covers about 7200 acres, with approximately 133 miles of shoreline, 13 miles long, and a flood-storage capacity of 62,619 acre-feet. Although Chatuge was originally built to for water storage to help prevent flooding downstream, it currently serves many purposes, including flood control, electric power generation, augmentation of water flows for navigation downstream, and provides numerous recreational opportunities, including boating, swimming, skiing, camping, hiking and fishing. Thirty-two species of fish inhabit Lake Chatuge, with smallmouth bass, large-mouth, spotted, white, and hybrids are stocked annually. More info. about fishing Chatuge: georgiawildlife.dnr.state.ga.us
Water levels on Lake Chatuge fluctuate and average between 1918 and 1920 feet elevation during normal Winter pool, and 1925 and 1927 feet during normal Summer pool. But, at the request of the North Carolina Department of Transportation, TVA reduced the water levels in the Chatuge Reservoir approximately 4 to 5 feet below typical drawdown levels to allow for bridge construction--- which is now completed and water levels are on their way back up for the summer!!
