North Georgia Trout, Man do I miss Them!
What is it about North Georgia's trout streams that draws thousands of anglers each weekend to some of the South's most popular rivers? It could be the fact that Georgia has over 4,000 miles of Trout stream water and I can honestly say that during my days at UGA and living in Atlanta, I fished a great deal of them! Whether it was my personal favorite of the Chattooga, Dicks Creek, Toccoa or the Chattahooooooooochee. I now live in Denver and the closest trout water is around 30 minutes yet I could drive only 15 minutes to a local trout spot when I lived in Atl, that seems wild but true!
