The Chattahoochee River may be an Atlanta urban fishing spot, but that’s no reason to avoid it. If you’re looking for trout, you’ll hardly be able to find it in such ample amounts anywhere else in Georgia. More alike to the White and the Norfolk of Arkansas, this generous tailwater is the best angling destination in and around the Peach State.
Don’t visit it alone, though – our FishAnywhere Chattahoochee River fishing charters are intended for larger groups of adventurous fishermen, both seasoned and novice, so bring your family and friends along for the ride.
Experienced anglers from Georgia are unfortunately not blessed with many choices – judging by the freestone streams in the mountainous northern part of the state, Georgia is not exactly rich with fishing destinations that offer both keepers and thrills. One exception is the 430-mile long Chattahoochee River, adored by Georgia anglers but also by fishermen from Alabama and Florida.
Ask any of these angling veterans, and they’ll tell you the same – fishing the Chattahoochee River is always a pleasant surprise.
