View Full Version : Rock Creek

I am about 90% sure that me and my mom are going on a camping trip to (please answer me)
Rock Creek:D . But I was wondering which Campsite is better, by lake or the other one. Also I'm not familiar with the area and what are some good areas to try for. I think I'm going to bring along spinners, along with nightcrawlers. Is there another bait shop heading up that way. Any help would be much appreciated. Also will provide a report with pics and maybe a video when i get back. let's see if these t'storms have helped with these lower water levels
-tight lines and good fishin':D

Does anybody have any advice please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:bawl:
I'd stay by the lake if you prefer a little more room, but honestly at Rock you won't get much room anywhere. The fishing should be good pretty much anywhere you can keep your lines out of everyone else's.
There is one little section that most folks don't get to, but I wouldn't advise you to go there alone at 15 years old. If mom is a serious outdoorsperson then maybe she'd join you. It gets pretty difficult in there during the summer.

. On Hwy 60 there is Martin's Mercantile. You can buy bait etc here.
Please check the fishing regs before you go.
From HWy 60, you will turn on to Forest Rd 69, (Fish hatchery Road, Rock Creek Road). You will come to a 1 lane bridge. There are several camp sights in that area on both sides of the creek. You can also catch some fish there. If you cross the bridge and follow the road as it curves around to the right, you will come to a trail crossing. (Look for painted marks on teh trees) Walk down that hill and the Benton-McKaye foot bridge will be to your left. (Thats the Toccoa River), to the right you will eventually come to where Rock Creek dumps into the TOC. Fishing is pretty decent there too.
Watch for lots of snakes this time of year. You can also fish right at the Hatchery if you don't have any luck. Be prepared to see lots of other fishermen around. You can pretty much fish all of Rock Creek from just above the Hatchery all the way down to the Toccoa. A decent well established place to camp is Frank Gross Campground just above the Hatchery. I think it is like 5 bucks to camp per night. BE AWARE OF THE CAMP FIRE BAN !!!
Be safe, be ethical and be careful. Mostly have FUN !!!!:cheers:

Don't worry ill be safe and have fun
-tight lines to all:D
I would try either redworms or crickets rather than nightcrawlers.
Deep Hole campground is also close by. It is on the Toccoa and I think it would be a better camping spot than Rock Creek. Save the night crawlers for a big ole Bass, go with the crickets.
