" Lake Russell , also on the Savannah River, is a very pretty lake, with less development than Lake Hartwell. There are two boat ramps I've tried on the lower part of Lake Russell. This seems to be the widest part of the lake. Shuck Pen Eddy on the Georgia side works with somewhat easterly winds. Manor Creek on the South Carolina side works with somewhat westerly winds. Both required a bit of tacking to get out from shore towards the middle of the lake.
Both locations are just a bit above the Lake Russell Dam, on opposite sides of the Lake. Shuck Pen Eddy is easily reached from Georgia 72 by going south on Bobby Brown Park Road. Manor Creek is a bit tougher to find; you cross the 72 bridge into South Carolina, go south on SC 81, then take some back roads to get to the boat ramp.
Middle Lake Russell The Elbert Boat Launch was one of the first places I tried. Its location is reasonable for most wind directions, except SW, although the lake has some narrow spots, and there are bridges which can lead to unpredictable wind gusts. " Source
