Default North Georgia

Has anybody ever fished or heard of Noontutla creek in North Georgia? Just wondering because the Fly Fishing Masters national championship was held their. They caught some really big fish. We are trying to make a trip over their, does anybody know where it is? Thanks. Oh by the way our boys from the east won it.

There are others of this type in North Georgia. I fished Blackhawk Farm on the So'que a couple of years ago. The rate was $ 175.00 then for a full day, we split another 150.00 for a guide to show us the hot set-up and not waste time. Had a ball about 25 fish and the smallest was an 18" brown on a madame X. Four fish 10 lb or better! They are what they are though, fun to catch, fun day. The stream is full of pigs, I have heard they are not always easy to catch. Our guide was Gene Roberts 706 782-6371. Not sure about Blackhawk, do a google search for blackhawk and you will find it.
Gene had some fantastic "San Juan Worms"!

There is a public section above NCF. There is 5-6 miles of water on the Blueridge WMA and it is not stocked. Special regs.- limit of one 16" fish/ day if you don't C&R. The "bows and browns are wild and plentiful. It is like fishing the Smokies- stealth fishing for strong, colorful fish. I fished it for the first time last week and I will be go back soon. I caught several and spooked a bunch in 3 hours of fishing.

The Pay to play section of Noontootla is a small part of the creek - there is a LOT of fishable water above it. It is one of many smaller Georgia streams. For the public section there is a creel limit of one fish per day over 18" - now it is rare to catch one this big but they are in there - along with some Georgia "natives".

You can get a lot of info on NGTO regarding Noontootla and other Georgia destinations (NGTO is a non-profit 5013c org out of Georgia) - www.ngto.org - also try www.georgiafishingbooks.com for Chattahoochee info.

Something no one has mentioned is that the road that runs the length of Noontootla has been closed, nearly at it's mid-point for a year or so. There was a wash out, and it doesn't look like the FS is in any real hurry to fix it. Just as well, as it makes the creek a tiny bit more inaccesible. You can still get to the whole creek, but you'll have to make a choice as to which end( north or south) you want to come in on, because again - at the mid-point of the upper and lower public areas, the road is closed.

Also, the creek on the public section isn't chock full of huge fish. There are some nice trout in there, but the bigger rainbows and browns run about 10-12 inches for the most part with lots of little 6inch dinks mixed in. There are some larger fish in the creek, but they are not common. An honest tape-measure 15 incher is a real prize there. Anything larger is a fish of a lifetime for wild fish in GA.
Just a bit of FYI - When you see somethin' on TV that looks too good to be true....it probably is. Lots of money to catch pellet-fed stockers, when you can do the same thing in North Carolina on a DH stream with a little effort and some experience. Start with searches on the web, or try to fish with someone that it better than you are and it will help you become a better fisherman. The internet is a good place to fins a fishing buddy, but be careful out there too. Lots of crazies out there. Good luck!
