Mountaintown Creek Fly Fishing

The 10th most popular fly fishing river in Georgia.

Southwest of Ellijay, the Mountaintown Creek is known for its rainbow trout and brown trout. Depending upon the section of the stream, the trout are either wild or stocked. The most popular section is the upstream portion flowing through the Cohutta Wildlife Management Area, which has great public access. Some of the lower stretches run through unmarked private land.

If you feel like a hike, try to get upstream of Hills Lake for wild rainbow trout up to 12 inches long and brown trout under 9 inches.

Overall, Mountaintown Creek is the 10th most popular fly fishing river of all 12 fly fishing spots in Georgia.
