Fishing in Piedmont Park
Piedmont Park Map
“As a native Atlantan, I have many fond memories of Piedmont Park, from swimming in its pool as a child, to smooching while parked with my girl friend as a college student, to attending the arts festivals as a young husband, to making decisions on its management as mayor of the city. In that last role, I recall specifically having the lake stocked and inviting young and old to fish from its banks, which had previously been prohibited.”
- Sam Massell, former Atlanta mayor
Restocking fish in Clara Meer, Piedmont Park.

Clara Meer was created for the 1895 Cotton States and International Exposition. The lake is routinely stocked with fish, including Large Mouth Bass, Crappie, Bream and Catfish, and attracts anglers of all ages. A valid State of Georgia fishing license is needed to fish in Piedmont Park.

Since Piedmont Park Conservancy renovated Clara Meer in 2002, fishing in Piedmont Park is even better. The new bridge unifies the two parts of the lake into a single body of water, an aeration system improves water quality, and three new fishing piers and the dock make it easier than ever to find the right spot.
