Skip -- If you're staying at Helen, you've got the Chattahootchie River flowing right through town, though fishing
is better upstream. Smith's Creek is just north of town at Anna Ruby Falls and Downstream from there. Duke's Creek is
nearby and Wildcat Creek, the Tallulah and Coleman Rivers are not that far away. Be sure to check out Unicoi Outfitters
just north of Helen (go straight instead of turning toward the state park). It's about a half mile up the road on the
left. They can tell you what the trout are hitting and where they are hitting. They have a great supply of fishing equipment,
flies, etc. Also, they sometimes have licenses, but every time I've tried, they been out. They always send me up to the state
park. That late in the year you may have to do some searching because the season ends November 30 and a lot of dealers don't
restock when they run out.
Check other sections of the NGTO website for complete information on streams and fishing regulations. A Seven-day
non-resident license is $7.00 and a trout stamp good for a year is $13.00. Georgia has expanded their year-round streams
do if you're gonna be in Helen after Nov. 30, you'll need to know what streams are open. That's available on the NGTO
website, also. Have fun!
