Spolcane creek is a freestone feeder creek to the upper Chattahoochee river near Helen, GA. I honestly I do not know why the state of Georgia stocks this creek. It is one of the most useless creeks I have seen here in Gerogia to stock, there are only a small handful of areas that are open to public to fish and the creek has a very low flow of water almost year round. In the stocked areas of Spoilcane the creek hardly ever gets deeper than a foot of water. Besides Spoilcane Creek’s horrid conditions to fish it is located on one of the busiest and dangerous roads in Georgia (Highway 75), very little parking, and there are a lot of bears Just know if you do try to fish Spoilcane be sure to make sure that you bring bear spray and make sure when parked your car is completely off the main highway ( the few spots that you can park in are very tiny).
