When it comes to fly fishing the Toccoa River in North Georgia, the first thing to realize is that fishing in the Toccoa River is almost like fishing in two completely different rivers. The reason for this apparent duality is because of the Blue Ridge Lake. The waters of the Toccoa River that are found above the lake are like any northern Georgia River, while the waters below the lake are more like tail waters.

The Upper Toccoa River:

Located in the Aska Adventure Area, the Toccoa River flows through the Wilderness area, providing premier outdoor adventures from hiking, tubing, and kayaking, but opportunities for trout fishing abound. There is ample room for fly casting, and there are many deep, slow-moving pools located throughout the length of the river, reminding most fly fishermen of a large headwater trout stream.

Another great benefit of fly fishing on the Upper Toccoa River is that there is a designated delayed harvest section measuring around 1.5 miles to the public. This section is stocked heavily during the colder months with quality rainbow trout. Not only will you find stocked rainbows, but you also hook into the occasional trophy brown trout. While the naturally grown trout are few and far between, the river does sustain holdover fish throughout the year....
