Default Blue Ridge Trout Festival & Outdoor Adventures

The official Trout Festival of Georgia returns to Blue Ridge this spring when thousands of outdoors enthusiasts descend upon Georgia’s top trout-fishing destination – Fannin County, the Trout Capital of Georgia – to benefit cold-water education, service, conservation and recreation in North Georgia via the mission of Blue Ridge Mountain Trout Unlimited Chapter 696.

Located among the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains just 90 miles north of downtown Atlanta, the festival opens April 28 with an exclusive fund-raising High Country Boil & Silent Auction – a seafood-and-fixin’s-eat-with-your-hands dinner and auction hosted at Mercier Orchards, Fannin County’s family owned and operated premier apple orchard now in its fourth generation and featuring Mercier Hard Cider and wines. Tickets for the dinner, 5:30 to 9 pm, are only available online at

Next up, local outfitters and fishing guides, fishing gear and tackle reps, kayak liveries, hiking clubs, mountain bikers/cyclists, whitewater outfitters and an impressive list of local experts in all things outdoors gather at the all-day Break-Out Marketplace, Saturday, April 29 from 10 am to 7 pm, in the downtown City Park while live music provides entertainment, and food trucks and a beer garden offer great eats and beverages. Commercial vendors and local shops of outdoor recreation and gear will be on hand to share the latest outdoor products and services. Expert anglers will provide free fly-fishing instruction, and local fishing guides will share inside information on trout-fishing in the North Georgia mountains.

Blue Ridge Trout Festival & Outdoor Adventures also features a number of conservation-related exhibitors and recreation providers, reinforcing Trout Unlimited’s commitment to protecting and improving cold-water fisheries, while expanding its education program for people of all ages. Proceeds from the Festival go directly to local conservation, education and service work supported by the membership of Blue Ridge Mountain Trout Unlimited Chapter 696 (BRMTU). One of Fannin County’s most active non-profit organizations, BRMTU shares these funds to achieve its mission across the cold-water resources of North Georgia on behalf of the community of supporting services.
