Blue Ridge is located the "Trout Capital of Georgia" and local fishing experiences satisfy anglers of all skill levels.. Fly fishermen love our North Georgia Mountains, where lakes, streams and rivers brim with trophy trout. Many of our 500+ miles of mountain water provide technical challenges for experienced fishermen. Stocked rivers offer a more leisurely fishing experience. Kids can master the art of fishing in stocked ponds before progressing to North Georgia rivers and lakes. The cool, deep waters of Lake Blue Ridge are home to bass, bluegill, trout and walleye, a fish usually found only in the Great Lakes. With multiple Escape to Blue Ridge cabins near lakes or rivers, fisherman can spend more time on the water.
