: I am going up to the mountains in mid-April. I am still not sure where to go. I would like to do some flyfishing for wild trout, maybe Brookies. Any suggestions?
With all due respect to Mr. B. Trout, I disagree
concerning the fly rod issue and small steams. I
do it all the time. I fish steams that you can
jump across back in the mountains, with heavy
laurel cover. You have to roll cast, and even
crawl in and "bow and arrow" the fly in the hole.
Takes a little patience and practice, but if you
enjoy flyfishing the rewards are worth it.
There are lots of steams with wild trout, but
you will only find streams with brookies at the
extreme headwater tributaries. For wild browns,
check out Jones Creek on the Blue Ridge WMA.
Stanley Creek on the Rich Moutain WMA has wild
rainbows. I've heard that the Coleman River, in
Rabun County has wild brook trout in it's headwaters.
