Toccoa River -- north
Georgia's longest cold-water river -- collects springs, seeps, branches
and creeks in the high forestlands of Fannin and Union counties. All
that clear and cold water eventually grows large enough
to provide winter,
spring, summer and fall opportunities to float-fish for rainbow, brown
and brook trout in
both the upper and lower river, separated by still more warm-water
fishing opportunities in scenic Lake Blue Ridge.
The beautiful "upper
river" float trips take place on
the Toccoa through the community of Dial. Along its path here, it
flows through pastoral lands and among high ridges -- all adding to the
outstanding experience found by fly-rodders and spin-tackle anglers
alike. The 4-mile float includes
"delayed harvest" section
of the Toccoa, where
catch-and-release fishing regulations from Nov. 1 to May15 keep fish
numbers high and the action swinging!
Brookies, browns and 'bows make up
the catch all along the float, with fish averaging 12 to 15 inches,
along with some true trophy trout caught frequently.

strict catch-and-release fishing ethics. Strip
streamers, tumble nymphs and float dry flies through boulder runs, deep
pools, shady laydowns and rippling shoals. Catches commonly include fish
in the 10- to 12-inch range, but trophy brown and rainbow trout -- 15 inches
and longer! -- frequently surprise anglers with smashing strikes,
spectacular jumps and driving runs. Even larger trout are sometimes seen
... and hooked!
