North Georgia Trout Fishing

Trout Fishing North Georgia offers half and full day float trips on the Toccoa River, near Blue Ridge, Georgia. Captain Joe offers both fly-fishing and light spinning gear on every trip.

Guests will enjoy fishing for Trout from the comfortable Aluminum frame that sits atop two, 16’ Aire pontoons. Not only is the boat more stable than conventional hard drift boats and dories, it’s also a better platform for older folks and kids to fish from.

While he doesn’t have the luxury of guiding every single day, it’s safe to say that living just minutes from the river gives Joe the chance to fish the river just about every day. He’s built much of his word of mouth business on the simple fact that he is likely the only person who fishes the Toccoa more than 280 days a year. After discovering guide work in saltwater in college, beginning to guide on the river after college was a natural transition.

For Joe, the best part of his job is giving his clients the opportunity to experience the stunning beauty of the Toccoa and the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains while landing some Trout too. There’s nothing better than watching a client hook, land and release a trophy Trout! He’s often been accused of getting more excited than the clients themselves when they hook up on a big fish.

The fish range anywhere from 8 to 14-inches long on average, with any given day’s “big fish” typically pushing 20-inches or more.

All rods, reels, flies, lures, tackle and other fishing gear is prepared for guests. You need to acquire a valid Georgia fishing license before the trip. Everything else is covered by the charter.

Novice or master angler, a trip with Joe is a rewarding experience for anyone. Book a trip today and explore North Georgia the right way, rod in hand!

I've always fished for anything I could get to bite as long as I can remember. As I grew older, the need to fish only grew more and more. While at USF in Tampa, I got my first taste of taking clients fishing and loved the feeling it gave me.
