Fishing: Chattooga River

Chattooga River

The headwaters of the Chattooga River run through Forest Service lands. As it finds its way down the old-growth Hemlock forest, there is a trail system by its side that goes for miles. The fishing is at its peak in the spring and fall, but even summertime produces good days.

It should be noted that the Chattooga is a very technical river. Deep pools, fast narrow runs and wide slicks require a bit of skill to fish effectively. It is moderate in its wading requirements, though there are some areas that you will just have to climb around. As with all wild trout waters, covering ground is essential.

There is a trail that runs riverside for most of the upper stretch. At times, it is high on a ridge, but the trail connects the Bull Pen trailhead with the Whiteside Cove Road trailhead. If you are willing to walk it, it almost never fails that you will find yourself alone on the stream.

Getting there: Take Hwy. 107 South appx. 6-7 miles to Bull Pen Road (SR 1100) on the right. (If you reach the SC state line, you have gone too far.) Travel appx. 5 miles to the iron bridge. The trail is on your right just after you cross the bridge.
