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!

Let Jonathan guide you. He was EXCELLENT. He put us on the fish the entire time. His knowledge of the lake enabled us to catch fish when other boats weren't . Great trip!

My father and I chartered a half day with Captain Len. I managed to catch a 18 pound 34 inch Striper Bass and we also caught 4 hefty green spotted bass. Captain Len’s boat was well equipped and he took us to two different fishing spots. All in all it was a great day - highly recommended!

Captain Lenn Slayer knows how to find the fish. He was also great with our 5yr old daughter who can be a handful sometimes. We will definately be fishing with him again.

The only other worse condition that could have been dealt us was rain. There was a cold front that blew in the night before our trip and conditions were terrible to fish, however Len stuck with it, continually trying everything and everywhere and we ended up catching a few fish for the live well. Len has great knowledge of the lake and how to catch them. There is no doubt that on a good day with the right conditions, Len will put you on the fish.

Captain Len was great. He is very serious about making sure you have a great time and catch a lot of fish. Our boys learned so much about fishing from him. It was well worth the money and I recommend captain Len and this trip to anyone who loves to fish.

Fishing for Stripers, Spots and Walleye on beautiful Carters Lake doesn’t disappoint! One thing that can make or break any trip is the attitude and personality of the captain. Len not only put us on some trophy Stripers but also answered a lot of questions about the fishing in Carters and the local area.

Trip good; Len very knowledgeable. Only thing disappointed in was not being able to take fish home—customer needs to confirm with Captain ahead of time how that would be possible(storing, cleaning, etc). What we need to bring
