Rob:
I fly fish many of the rivers in North Georgia and
think the Chattahoochie is the most productive of
them all. I generally have much luck with size 16
to 18 gold ribbed hare's ears (with or without beads)
16 to 20 midge imitations and 14 to 18 pheasent tails.

If you don't have wadders or a float tube...try walking
in at the bridge area off Highway 20 between the town
of Buford and Cumming. It's about a 20 minute ride
from Gainesville. Make sure you enter on the Southeast
side of the bridge....the other side is privately
owned and the gentleman who lives there doesn't let
people cross on his land.

There are several large boulders you can stand on
and plenty of room to cast. NOTE: this area is
Artificial Only....which helps us who enjoy fly fishing
more than spin casters with corn or worms!

Good Luck and Tight Lines

Steve D.
