North Georgia is known by many anglers as a great place for trout fishing. There are numerous creeks, rivers, and streams and many of them are stocked each year to keep the numbers up. Quite often you can find a place on your own but first time travelers to the area will generally have the best experience if they hire one of the skilled guides in the area.
Grab your favorite bait, a pole, and your sense of adventure and head to the Blue Ridge Mountains in Ellijay and Chatsworth GA for some of the best fishing in the Southeast. There are plenty of fish for almost any bait but we recommend that you consider fly fishing this area. Fly Fishing in North Georgia is an experience that you will remember for a lifetime.
If you prefer lake fishing then check out Carter’s Lake. Carter’s lake has campsites, RV hookups, boat rentals, and just about everything you need for a fun filled day of fishing.
