Lee County, Georgia’s 68th county, was established in 1826 and was named for Richard Henry Lee. He was noted for capturing Augusta from the British in 1781 and was the father of Robert E. Lee.
Lee County boasts opportunities for hunters and fishermen. Hunters can find quail, duck, and deer, with quail being most prevalent. Although public hunting land is limited, hunters can rent land seasonally on south Georgia plantations. Fishing is also popular along the Flint River and Kinchafoonee and Muckalee Creeks, which abound with bass, catfish, and bream.
