Matt Dorsey Fly Fishing

If you are dreaming of some freshwater action in the gorgeous countryside with the chance to bag mouth-watering fish, well Matt Dorsey Fly Fishing is just a thing for you. Drop by Cornelia and get ready to make some memories and catch some fish. Titular Captain Matt Dorsey will accommodate your needs and he will do his best to make the right fishing trip for you.

Welcome aboard his 22’ Sea Pro center console. It’s equipped with a single 4-stroke Yamaha engine that can reach speeds up to 55 knots. You’ll be zooming from one hot-spot to another in no time! There’s also a wireless trolling motor for a tactical approach, and fishfinding equipment is available on board. Generally, the boat’s full capacity is 8 guests per trip, but arrangements can be made for an even larger number of people.

This charter specializes in fresh-water fishing which includes many lakes of the region, like Lakes Lainer, Burton, Chatuge, Raburn, and Seed. There’s also an option of visiting private access to the Soquee River.  You’ll be going after many different species of Bass and Trout, with the possibility of Walley and Crappie. There’s a variety of fishing techniques at your disposal ranging from light tackle to trolling and fly fishing.

Be sure to get a Georgia fishing license online, as the charter doesn’t cover it. They do provide all the necessary fishing equipment, lures, and live bait. The crew offers cool drinks from their ice-box, and in case of whole-day trips, there’s an option of lunch. Be sure to check with the Captain which areas require catch and release, and what is the limit of fish you can keep. Families with children are welcome, and this is a no-smoking charter, though Captain can be flexible.

Surround yourself with beautiful scenery and roll up your sleeves to catch some delicious fish. Contact Matt Dorsey Fly Fishing, and make it happen.
