We fly fish year-round and there is no closed fishing season on the Chattahoochee.
We provide all fly-fishing gear, except waders and rain gear.
The Chattahoochee is a classic southern tailwater trout fishery, with 48 miles of designated trout waters and trophy regulations. The annual average water temperature from Buford Dam is 55 degrees. Many people do not realize Buford Dam is 1,071 feet above sea level, with over 125 feet of relief in the stream bed for 48 river miles, mixed with shoals and gravel bars with average depths of 5 feet. The minimum flow is 1,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) and maximum flow is 10,000 cfs; the average streambed width is 150 feet. The river offers prolific mayfly, caddis, and stonefly hatches.
We have mild summers and winters. Atlanta is the second-highest major city in elevation, next to Denver, at 1,025 feet above sea level. We experience all four seasons with an ideal climate for year-round outdoor activities.
We offer full- (8 hours) and half-day (4 hours) guided wade or drift boat trips, catered shore lunches with Boars Head deli meats and cheeses, beginner fly-fishing classes, and advanced on-stream fly-fishing instruction.
We fish for trout year-round and, in the summers and fall, we target carp, stripers, and shoal bass.
Clients should bring a Georgia fishing license, rain gear, chest waders (optional), and sunscreen.
Gratuities are not included in the price, nor are pick-up and drop off fees to shuttle from the subway via Hartsfield Airport. We are located about a one-hour drive from airport.
