Fishing at Sweetwater Creek

I photographed fishermen at Sweetwater Creek State Park in Lithia Springs, Georgia for a Three of a Kind photo feature for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday, May 16, 2012. Sweetwater Creek has numerous fishing spots along the Chattahoochee River but the main draw is the George H. Sparks Reservoir. Fishing enthusiasts can bring their own small engine boat or non engine craft or can rent kayaks, canoes, paddle boats or pontoons from the ranger station bait shop on site.
