Don't plan on fishing in downtown Helen. Way too many float tubes (the recreational type). You should go upstream from Helen about 10 miles on a winding gravel road (stump road--or something like that) and fish the upper part of the hooch.
Bring your ultralight spinning outfit, a tube full of crikets, and some worms. This area is well-stocked and sometimes heavily fished. Mostly you will see a lot of kids swimming and some trash. But, you can catch some trout. It will be a good location for a first time trout fishing trip.
