fly fishing

Fly fishing in Georgia is almost year around. The season officially begins in March and goes through October.

It’s easy to pick up a fishing license from a nearby outfitter or to purchase one online for those 16 and older. Go for the day or longer!

Where To Go

  • North Georgia
    The communities of Blue Ridge and Clarkesville in the North Georgia mountains are two of the best places for fly fishing around, especially for trout because of the cold water.Blue Ridge is considered to be the state’s trout fishing capital with dozens of outfitters on the Toccoa River. But the smaller creeks like Rock, Cooper and Noontootla creeks also offer trout fishing.
  • Atlanta & Farther South

    You can even go fly fishing on the Chattahoochee River, a short drive from downtown Atlanta. The river is a blue ribbon trout stream and has been named one of the top streams in the country.


There are plenty of opportunities to advance your fly fishing skills, or just to learn in Georgia.
