About the Chattahoochee River:
The Chattahoochee River provides an excellent year round fly fishing opportunity right here in Atlanta! The constant cool water from Buford Dam is what creates the perfect habitat for trout as the water rarely gets warmer than 50°F. In fact, Trout Unlimited ranked the Chattahoochee as one of America’s 100 best trout streams! Much of the land in the stretch below Lake Lanier lies within the National Park Service (NPS) and is managed by the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA).
