 Nottely River
 Quit Wishing & Start Fishing!
Whether you want to wet a fly or just “drown
some worms,” you’ll find plenty of excellent Ffishing spots throughout the mountains.
ertile waters and low fishing pressure combine to make Lake Nottely one of the best bass fishing lakes in North Georgia. Both 20-acre Lake Trahlyta in Vogel
State Park and its feeder stream, Wolf Creek, are stocked with rainbow trout from the nearby Chatta- hoochee National Fish Hatchery. Warm water species include largemouth bass and sunfish.
During the winter, fishing and boating are permitted on 18-acre Lake Winfield Scott, where you’ll find a paved launch located near the head of the lake. Rock Creek, downstream from the fish hatchery in Suches, is regularly stocked with rainbows and is a great access point for families and junior anglers. Cooper Creek and Mulky Creek, both within the 1,240-acre Cooper Creek Recreation Area, are popular spots for both stocked and wild trout.
The fishing is good for rock and smallmouth bass as well as rainbow and brown trout at Deep Hole Recreation Area. A canoe launch provides easy access to the Toccoa River.
Georgia fishing licenses are available at the Vogel State Park Visitors Center or Walmart, online at takemefishing.org or georgiawildlife.com, or by phone at 800-366-2661.
