The Oconee doesn't actualy fork. The Oconee itself runs down from Jackson, into Clarke County, through the middle of Athens. The Middle Oconee River, referred to in land deeds,etc.,as the middle fork of the Oconee River runs out of Jackson County and into Clarke,on the west side of Athens. The Middle Oconee joins with McNutt Creek, forming part of the northern boundary of Clarke and Oconee (Formerly Clarke) counties. The two rivers then meet just east of Watkinsville (Oconee County).
