i've fished trophy waters in that area a number of times but not the tick. typically it's chuck and duck. mostly nymphs with droppers , splitshot and an indicator. light tippet (5x). every place that i've fished, the waters are exceptionally well taken care of and the fish are huge and plentiful, while the streams are quite small. challenging and technical fishing. you may want to look at north georgia trout on line web site. good luck and i'm confident you'll have a great time.

trout about n georgia

hey thanks for imput. pleasantly surprised to see a web board dedicated to trout in GA no less. im a formidable c+d guy from my pulaski steelie days. recently into two handed techniques. am thinking bout single hand spey swinging with ,my steelie stuff to them, and with small fly indie style if nothing bites. perhaps a smaller waking fly on the floater if the temp and water seems right. thanks for imput.

those are small streams with a lot of overhanging trees so there's really no room for swinging anything!

If you really want big fish, fish early or better yet late with big streamer patterns.

i agree with teflon jones. the streams are small with usually a lot of overhang. 81/2' rods are the general rule and many folks fish even shorter rods down to71/2'. for streams known to hold the largest fish(22"-27") i use an 8' 6wt rod. not the best for mending, but the stout rod helps in the fight, particularly in the narrow streams that have lots of rocks, branches, and other obstacles. on many streams a 7wt is recommended. and on some streams nothing smaller than a 6wt is allowed. i know this is hard to believe but an 18"-20" rainbow is nothing to rave about. on another note, i have always fished with a guide, and all of them use the same rigging system and chamge flies at the drop of a hat. that said, none have ever tied on a streamer, nor a dry for that matter. if you are fishing with a guide, i'm sure they'll "guide" you with fly selection.
