Rainbow Trout

Certainly the most common of the wild trout here in North Georgia. The Rainbow is a master of colonizing new waters and carries quite the appetite.


Brook Trout

The gems of Southern Appalachia. They can be incredibly tough to find in Georgia without knowing the right place to look. Once you do find them they are both spooky and quite aggressive.


Brown Trout

Wild Brown Trout can certainly be the toughest of the trout species to find in Georgia's headwater streams. Aside from the larger waters of the Toccoa River  and Chattahoochee River, where they are quite abundant, wild browns on small waters are few and far between. Match this with the fact they can be very picky eaters, they make for a worthwhile  challenge for any fly angler.
