Default Hiawassee River?

I have been in Georgia for two years and am still finding my way around. Can anyone give me some information, good or bad, on the Hiawassee River near Hiawassee?

Mostly private, there are only a couple of access points on the river. The river is very warm now so I would look else where.

Thank you. I am thinking about going in October and renting a cabin on the river. Would that time of year be better?

The short answer is Yes.

The longer answer is it depends on how close you are to a well-fed section of river, but the potential is epic.

If you are staying at the Hiawassee River Trout Lodge that's good.

You know, as a kid I fished or floated from the first 75 bridge all the way down to the second crossing and beyond. Had lots of fun, never got busted for being on private property. Times must have changed a lot over the years.

Indeed they have DaDa. I used to know 15 places on the northern end of Allatoona Lake where you could access the lake bank. Little one-lane dirt roads and various trails. Now they are all locked up--blocked with steel gates and chains, logs across the roads. You can' hardly access the lake now without going through a picnic area, campground, day-use area or a launch ramp. Access is well regulated now due to a variety of illegal activities that were drawn to these remote places.

Years ago the Hi was still good in Aug. w/ the Isonechia hatch & anything down deep. Haven't been in a couple years though. Don't understand the water temp comment though. They pipe the water sever miles from lake Appalachia before it empties along side a hardtop road. My favorite stream in all of the SE. The comments have curious.
