Try going a little farther for decent trout water. For stockers try Wildcat Creek that flow in to Lake Burton. There are some wild fish in there too. You also might want to try the Talullah River above Clayton. All of these streams are heavily stocked. Most any nymph will work on the stockers. Try a Gold Ribbed Hares Ear, Tellico, Pheasant Tail etc. You might also want to try an Elk Hair Caddis with a yellow body. This imitates the Yellow Sallies that are prevalent on the water now. There are some wild trout streams in GA, and these trout respond more readily to flies. You will probably have to do a little searching, however, to find them. Good luck. Don't give up on the sport. It takes some time, but soon you will be having 25 and 30 fish days, at the right time of year at the right place.
