The Story

Go fly fishing in Georgia and enlist the help of the experts at Orvis-endorsed outfitter and fly shop, Cohutta Fly Fishing Company. Located in the mountain town of Blue Ridge, we are North Georgia’s premier fly shop, outfitter, and guide service. From the moment you step into our store, we strive to provide the best customer service possible, with friendly and knowledgeable shop staff and fishing guides. If you’ve never touched a fly rod, we offer schools, guided fly-fishing trips for trout, and information that can help you get your feet wet. For the advanced angler, we offer guided fishing on world-class fisheries in Georgia and destination travel trips, both in-country as well as abroad.

Our retail store is guide-oriented, in the sense that we stock proven products that our guides use. When you step into the store, you will be greeted by friendly staff that breathe, sleep, and eat fly fishing and who are more than willing to give you the latest report as well as share knowledge and swap fishing stories.

On a typical guided fishing trip, expect to meet your guide either on location or at our retail store. Your guide will size and fit waders and boots if they are needed for your trip and then take time prior to fishing to go through basic instruction. We provide all the needed rods, reels, and terminal tackle for the day. On full-day trips, we will take a lunch break from fishing. A typical half-day trip is 4 hours, while a full day is 8 hours. All our trips are catch-and-release, fly-fishing only.

The Toccoa River, just outside of Downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia can be divided in to two sections: upper and lower. The upper Toccoa River begins in the mountains of the scenic Chattahoochee National Forest and eventually flows into Blue Ridge Lake. The Lower Toccoa River, or the “tailwater” section, flows out of the bottom of Blue Ridge Dam and maintains cool water year-round. We offer both float and wade trips, fly fishing for brown and rainbow trout on the Toccoa River and some of its tributaries. We also offer fly-fishing trips for striped bass and spotted bass on the Etowah River, as well as shoal bass trips in middle Georgia.

This is my first time fly fishing; what should I expect?

We strive for a good experience first and foremost! If this is a trip to just try something new, we will provide a fun environment where you can cut loose and catch some fish. If you’re looking for a more in-depth learning experience, we will cater your trip to teach. Our guides are instructors first, so please let your guide know what your expectations are for the day.
