North Georgia Fishing Report for September
The heat of summer is starting to wane and the trout are responding nicely. Even though water levels in the streams are still low, the angler who uses stealth can rack up some good numbers of fish. Most of the folks are gone and the creeks are home to the hardcore anglers.
We are seeing some decent tan and yellow Caddis hatches on the Toccoa tailwater in Blue Ridge. So a small size 16 Tan Elk Hair Caddis or Mathews X-Caddis has been producing strikes. Midge hatches are also pretty regular with Griffith’s Gnats size 20 and Zebra Midges size 18 working well. We are waiting on the October Caddis to make their debut, which can bring up some nice brown trout and rainbow trout.
Our small trout streams weathered the summer well with unusually cool temps and good rainfall.
Trout are whacking high riding dry flies all over in addition to black fur ant patterns. The small trout streams around Blairsville, Blue Ridge and Hiawassee Georgia have been productive all summer. Come see us at Southern Highroads Outfitters to get the latest information for your North Georgia fishing report on the high country streams here in the Southern Appalachian mountains.
