Fishing for Fall Trout Clinic *FREE*
Thursday September 28th, @7-9pm
Fall is a great time to be outdoors in north Georgia. It's also one of the most enjoyable times to fish for north Georgia trout!
Cooler weather revitalizes trout and trout anglers alike. It's the perfect season for trout fishing -- and whether you enjoy fishing for tiny wild fish or are after the trophy of a lifetime, this program will show you how to get in on the excitement that fall fishing can provide.
Fall fishing can be outstanding, but it helps to understand a few key things. Theseinclude...
* What motivates fall trout
* Fly selection for fall
* Tactics for fall trout fishing
Fall fishing brings some unique challenges, too, and we'll take a look at how to handle them...
* What to do about turnover on the Chattahoochee?
* Dealing with leaves (a big challenge!)
* Staying warm (or cool) (or both!)
* Fishing during hunting season
Finally, we'll look at some exciting fall trout fishing opportunities in Georgia's great trout waters. There are too many to cover them all, but we'll touch on a few favorites -- including the exciting fall trout fishery on the Chattahoochee tailwater!
You'll love fall trout fishing in Georgia, and this program will help you learn what you need to get the most out of trout fishing during this invigorating time of year!
