Default amicalola river

Anyone fished it lately? Staying at the state park with the in-laws this weekend and thinking about trying to escape for a few hours. Is the water to hot for trout fishing?

Yup, fish the really deep pools and only under the assumption that there are any trout left. Kayak and tube hatch is in full effect and the blue tubs are sprouting everywhere.
Good luck.

PMD's PED's up to #14, EHC #16 (light) up top soft hackles with a little bit of pink in the thorax, PT's and wire body nymphs. If all else fails go the bugger/SJ route.

...and just fyi, the trout fishing section of Amicalola River is not at the Amicalola Falls State Park (where you are staying).

The best pattern you select,this time of year,is to fish the *dawn/dusk shifts,whatever fly patterns you select, and especially on marginal waters such as the Amicalola! Middle of the day is for we human,s nap time, and for trout to hunker down, and avoid predators! Such time patterns are hard to pull off, on a family vacation,but the catch rate will soar {as in Catch/release rate of 100% I hope!} Otherwise, disregard this tip! Regards, Rocketroy *Also, tubers and other distractions are mostly non-existant!

ThankS for all the advice. Didn't get to fish the Ami butdid fish nimblewill creek for two hours Saturday morning. Caught one fish on a bugger. Plenty of fish in the water must have just missed the truck. Walked down the falls at the state park and the reflection pool had about 30 bait casters surrounding it. Poor fish didn't have a chance.

The creek in the park does have some wild bows in it along with some stockers. It is very small and tight fishing.
