I have almost come to conclusion that the state of Georgia loves to create areas designed specially for spin fishermen and also some for fly fishermen. Chickamauga Creek has only 30 yards of access, it is literally just one large hole that someone can fish for a couple hours. I am positive that this creek gets fished out almost as soon as it gets stocked. I have spent hours looking for other spots that the state of Georgia could also stock, however my search has not yielded anything as of yet. I have even went as far as to ask a local fly shop about it and they are almost certain that this is the only area that fishing is allowed publicly. 

The stream flows straight off of a small water fall into a massive hole, one that is very deep. From there it flows down past a nice wood covered bridge, then you will see the no trespassing signs begin. 

My advice is to fish this hole using nymphs, mops, squirmies, or using a wooly bugger. The reason being is that I believe that the fish that are stocked here get hammered with about everything but a fly. Using something very buggy might produce a very productive day. I wouldn’t right off this creek if you are looking for some fish to take home, fish it deep and be very thorough.
