About the ohoopee river


The Ohoopee River is a 119-mile-long river located in Southeast Georgia. The river was named after the Creek Indian phrase "ohopē," meaning "bubbling water." It is a "blackwater river," which means it's dark in color due to tannins leached from decaying vegetation. The river flows through several counties before converging with the Altamaha River. The Ohoopee River supports a wide range of fish, including catfish, bass, and bream. Several reservoirs and dams along the river provide hydroelectric power and irrigation to agricultural lands. The largest dam is the George W. Andrews Dam, which forms Lake George W. Andrews. Recreational activities along the river include fishing, boating, and camping. The Ohoopee River is also home to several rare species, including the Ohoopee Darter, a small fish found only in the river.
