One of the most popular reasons to visit Blue Ridge and the Fannin County area is its abundance of high quality trout streams and waterways. Each year thousands of anglers hit the Toccoa River and many of the surrounding creeks and streams for a shot at that one PERFECT rainbow trout. But unless you are an experienced trout fisherman (or just really lucky) the chances of coming away with anything bigger than stocker-size or a little better are pretty slim. So if you would rather spend your vacation catching fish rather than chasing them around, consider hiring a local fishing guide.
Hiring a trout fishing guide is a great way to ensure that the photo gallery on your phone is going to be full of fish and not road signs as you hop from stream to stream, and hands down the best fishing guide in Fannin County is On the Fly Excursions. The professional guides at On the Fly have been fishing the rivers, creeks and tributaries around Blue Ridge for decades and know exactly where the trout hide in the Georgia mountains. On the Fly’s premier fly fishing guides provide everything you need for an incredible trip, including, rods, reels, flies, waders or boats, water, cooler and ice and catered lunch for full day trips.
Pricing for On the Fly’s guide services vary depending on what you are looking for. A 1/2 day trip for one angler on public waters will run you $175 and the price can go up all the way to $425 with a full-day floating trip for two anglers with a catered lunch.
