Fishing in Lake Blue Ridge

Tucked away in the luscious forests of northern Georgia, Lake Blue Ridge is an oasis for holiday-makers looking to get away from it all. A Lake Blue Ridge fishing experience is one of the area’s true highlights, with the crystal clear blue waters playing home to a range of exciting and delicious fish. Come and test your skills in peace, and head home with enough to fill the freezer. 
 
A local guide will give you a helping hand as you go after beauties such as Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Spotted Bass, Rainbow Trout, Walleye, Perch, Catfish, and many more. Try drift fishing from the boat, cast from shore, or don your waders and get up close and personal to the fish, and you’re guaranteed a fun-filled day out. 
 
Whether you’re going out on the water for the first time, or fancy going after that trophy catch, there’s something for you in Lake Blue Ridge. Trips last 4–8 hours, with plenty of small fish rubbing shoulders with the monsters to keep you entertained throughout your time aboard. 
 
Most fishing charters on the lake head out from the northern hubs of Morgantown or Blue Ridge. With over 80% of the lake protected by the Chattahoochee National Forest, you’ll be at one with nature throughout your trip. Explore the 3,300-acre body of water and its tributaries, such as the Toccoa River, and get your fish on in style.
