> I think I know the answer-- but I thought I would throw the question out there for the experienced No. Ga. trout angler: Is there going to be any trout water in No. Ga. that will not be jam packed and shoulder-to-shoulder with trout anglers the weekend of July 4th ? Any expereince with overwhelming crowds on past July 4th's or can you expect the 'normal crowds' ? Searching for some " non-competitive" trout waters - any suggestions ? thanks.
I think if you try the Chattooga river at Burells Ford and walk down the Georgia side about a mile or so downstream. I think you should find some solitude there. You'll find the trout are hitting on red-brown, bead head,(copper or gold),partridge/soft hackle, size 12-14. It's a great fly to use. Use it as a 30"-40" dropper off of a dry fly. Good Luck!
