Fly Fishing Excursion in Clarksville, GAThere are hundreds of miles of mountain streams and rivers within only a few miles of the beautiful little town of Clarksville, GA, including the trophy trout waters of Soque River, and the professional guides of Turning Stone’s Fly Fishing are your key to unlocking their potential.

Clarksville, GA is situated in the mountains of northern Georgia in Habersham County along US Highway 441 at the southern edge of the Appalachian Mountains very near the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest that includes the Lake Russell Wildlife Management Area.

Fly Fishing Excursion in Clarksville, GA

Within the national forest are many rugged streams filled with brook trout, rainbow trout, and brown trout.  Many of the trout waters are far off the beaten path and difficult to get to, whereas other areas are near local roads and are fished more regularly.  Flowing within the town itself is the well-known Soque River with its trophy rainbow and brown trout. 

Although maps of the area can provide the locations of many of the streams and rivers that are available, unless you are familiar with the mountain roads, location of public lands, and areas where fly fishing is not allowed, then it is imperative that you have one of our professional guides at Turning Stone’s Fly Fishing lead you to success.
