Fishing in North Georgia
Despite heat, fishing is good in the rivers and ponds in the area.
With the heat hitting record highs fishing has been still been very good in the Chattahoochee River and small ponds and lakes.
You have to get out early and hit the rising fish to stay in the cool morning, but later in the day go deep to catch trout, bream and bass.
In the North Georgia mountains with the heat several of the private waters are closed or only fishing in the morning so call ahead before you plan your next trip.
- Safety is very important, ensure you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids.
- Be sure to wear a floation device while on the river and call ahead and get the release time for Buford Dam if you're planning to fish on the Chattahoochee River.
