Head for the hills! Celebrate Spring with treating yourself to a Blue Ridge adventure. Here are 5 Things to do in North Georgia this season:
Fannin County, the home of Blue Ridge, is the Trout Capital of Georgia. There are over 100 miles of great trout fishing rivers, creeks and streams in the area. Until May 15, all trout anglers are restricted to using single-hook artificial lures and flies, and all trout must be immediately released unharmed. The tributaries to the Toccoa River play the most important part of trout fishing in Fannin County. Big Creek, Noontootla Creek, Coopers Creek, Rock Creek and Fightingtown Creek are the largest of these small streams that hold stocked trout, wild trout or both.
