Wondering if I should go out to Athens this summer. A lot of people say it's underrated. Is it worth taking a trip out there?

No fish in that lake. The dam broke about an hour ago and all is lost lol.

Great little lake. Better than average lake for sure.

You should also give Purtis Creek State Park a try and Cedar Creek is very near.

Both of those lakes pale in comparison to Lake Athens
All the grass is gone in Purtis and the whole lake being a no wake zone just sucks
Cedar Creek is great for sand bass
You want consistent 3-5# with an occasional 8-12# bb, fish Athens.
