Default Help on the Toccoa

A friend and I are planning on taking our canoe out on the Toccoa in Blue Ridge. I was wondering where we should launch and park the other vehicle downstream. Along with that, what flies should we expect success on this time of year?

First of all, check the generation. No use in going with a canoe if they are generating. Try the float from the dam to Curtis Switch. This is an ALL DAY event. A few weeks back we had luck on griffiths gnats, stimulators, red copper johns, pheasant tails, olive wooly buggers. During the middle of the day there was a good hatch of mayflies, cahills I think. Zebra midges should work as well. Also try some beetle and ant patterns. Good luck.

Thanks for the info. One question: Is there a reason that a canoe will not work when they are generating? Is it too swift to fish?

Well, that's more of a personal feeling. You can fish it from a canoe, but its impossible to be real effective in it. A drift boat is the ticket on high water, but more than anything, the times I've been on it as the water came up, I saw lots of discoloration in the water and after that we just paddled out. Watch out for the railroad trestle on high water because it could be tricky. You may not mind being in a canoe on high water, I'm just pretty cautious.
Turned one over on the Madison in October a couple of years back. Just be careful.
