With your line in the water, you sit back to take in the stunning views around you. Beautiful sprawling Northern Georgia landscapes surround you, and panoramic Blue Ridge mountain views are visible from every angle. You feel the waves slowly rocking the boat back and forth as you scan the rippling waters around you. You feel a tug on your line and excitedly watch your bobber dip below the surface. You begin to reel and finesse your line and the fight for that first catch of the day begins. This is what fishing in Ellijay is all about.
GETTING OUT THERE
In the Ellijay area, there is no shortage of spots to set a boat out and cast a line. Many boat rental companies are available for places like Lake Blue Ridge, Carters Lake, and the Toccoa River. Whether you wish to rent a boat and take your gear out for a spin on your own or would like a guided fishing trip with gear provided, you will be able to find it with places like Lake Blue Ridge Marina. Fishing on the Toccoa River is a bit different than on the lake as the primary focus is trout and the shallow waters require fly fishing gear and techniques. You can find a guide to show you to the best spots and provide the essential equipment with Unicoi Outfitters.
A FEW IMPORTANT DETAILS
When fishing in a new or different place, it is crucial to be aware of the state and area regulations. Be sure to have the correct licenses so that you can have a smooth trip with no ripples in your experience. Trout fishing tends to be the most popular excursions for the area, and you can find daily limits, regulations, fishing reports, and more on the Georgia Department of Natural Resources website. They also have interactive maps that help you map out the best fishing spots so you can enjoy the best of Ellijay fishing.
