Fishing in Ellijay

Fishing in Ellijay, Georgia means direct access to a freshwater haven that never disappoints. The creeks around Ellijay offer great Trout fishing year round but you don’t have to stop there. Thanks to its great position, Ellijay is a good starting point for other fishing spots in North Georgia: 15 miles away from Blue Ridge Lake, 20 miles from Carters Lake, and, if you don’t mind a slightly longer ride, 70 miles from Lanier Lake.
 
Creeks and rivers in the area are perfect for fly fishing. Depending on the water levels, you can catch Trout on the fly, either from the boat or by wading. Fishing guides usually provide the equipment but it’s better to check in advance. Fly fishing is traditionally a technique that experienced anglers use but the guides around Ellijay will gladly show you the basics. If you’re after Bass or Walleye, visit some of the lakes. 
 
Start your Ellijay fishing trip and see why this area is nationally recognized for its terrific fishing opportunities!

Do yourself a favor if you haven’t fished Carters Lake and hire a guide. I caught two strippers each over 36 inches plus a half dozen spotted bass on a four hour trip with Captain Len Slay on Carters Lake in October 2023

Took a 4 hour morning trip with Captain Hoek on a Sunday. We fished on Lake Blue Ridge. He provided us with all the bait and equipment. All we had to bring was our fishing license, snacks, and ourselves. Looking forward to doing another trip with him in the future.

Captain Len knows what he’s doing. Won’t go wrong booking with him. Will repeat. Slow start to the day but had several fish in the boat before 11am with a couple personal records. Carters lake is clean and beautiful as well. Lots of wildlife spotted in addition to a great fishing trip. You won’t regret the experience.

I recently booked with captain Hoek for a four hour morning trip. He was on time and ready to go. His prices were more than reasonable. I honestly have no complaints . I would absolutely book with him again. We plan on a better time of year so the fishing is a little more active . All and all it was still a fun trip and he even let my son drive the boat which literally made his day!

Len is just a good guy. I brought my son and niece and we all had a blast. I caught the biggest bass I’d ever caught, my son got the biggest flathead he’s ever seen, we left with a mess of fish. I highly recommend.

Hunter is an excellent guide and was very intelligent and thoughtful! You can definitely tell he knows what he is talking about and is willing to do anything to make you happy on the trip. He worked as hard as he could to help us catch as many fish as we could! 10/10 recommend!

I booked the 4 hr trip for my husband and son and it was a great trip all around. The Captain was ready to go at the agreed upon start time and provided very helpful insights throughout the trip. My husband was pleased with the quantity of fish activity and my son was intrigued for the entire trip (no easy feat). 100% our fishing guide of choice.

Had an incredibly amazing experience hunting for big Stripers with Captain Len! He worked very hard to put us on the big ones……and then there was the sound of the drag trying to slow the line! Wow!!! Had the best time on Carters Lake! If you are looking for a guaranteed great fishing experience in the mountains Captain Len is your Guide!

We had 4 in our group for this summer half day trip with a wide range of experience and he was great with every one. I knew Captain Len really wanted us to catch fish even before we started when he offered to start earlier than advertised to take better advantage of early morning bite. He was ready to go with a full live well of bait. Doubling up on the bite a few times was pretty fun. Great trip and great memories!

Had a great time out on the lake. Caught a few bass which we kept and released a few cat fishes we caught. The captain had everything setup for us since we didn’t have much experience fishing. Beautiful lake which we felt we had to ourselves, we only saw about 2 other boats out there. Would definitely recommend.

Very fun and exciting morning on Carter’s Lake. Captain Len moved us around the lake so we could catch multiple fish, and just before our trip was over, we got the massive Striper we all wanted! Thank you for the multiple fishing poles, live bait, and being passionate about all of us catching fish! Highly Recommend!
