Fishing: Chattooga River
The Chattooga River offers fly fishing opportunities across North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina. The upper section in North Carolina provides low-pressure fishing in pristine forest settings, while the lower section along Highway 28 is a Delayed Harvest Stream with brook, rainbow, and brown trout thriving under regular stocking.
For beginners, Burrell’s Ford Campground is ideal for abundant trout. The Chattooga River Delayed Harvest section enforces catch-and-release regulations from October to May. Hiking upstream offers better fishing opportunities with fewer anglers.
