Hey,

You need to say hi and introduce yourself before asking favours. Just kidding;

Jacks River (trout, brook and rainbow) in the Cohutta Wilderness area. Mill Creek, Cohutta, Buy A Topo map of Cohutta, Ravens Cliffs, and Tearbritches Federal Wilderness Areas there are a bunch fo creeks. Fighting Town Creek in Dolongua has red eye in it I caught some.

Hey thanks for the info I will certainly get a map and check these locations out.

And I will remember to introduce myself before I ask any more questions.

You might also PM Lambster, he is a member of this forum and guides in GA, he will be able to steer you into some good fishing.

I forgot about him Larry, I kinda know that neck of the woods because I lived there for just shy of two years. I had never knew that Georgia was so beautiful until I ventured into North Georgia. It is incredible.

The rainbow there have a history that links them to Wyoming I think, one of those trades between state departments of fish & game. They have taken hold in a little creek known as Jacks River. Not the kind of place that can take a lot of pressure because it is small. It is a very nice place to fish and I camped out there many times.

Lambster would be a good source of Info.

Ard: I figured you might have lived there with the detailed advise you provided, but I didn't recall you ever mentioning it before.
Dang, now I know where all the rainbow trout in WY went!

Little late on this one. I just got back from fishing the Chattahoochie in Helen, GA, Dukes Creek at Smithgall Woods, and Smith Creek at Unicoi State Park. All within a few miles drive. Dukes is reservation only with some 10lb+ fish in there. Some of the areas are private water so check with Unicoi Outfitters in Helen and they can put you on the fish.
