Arguably Georgia’s premiere public-water destination for trophy trout, Dukes Creek is managed under special regulations to maintain and protect the excellent fishing the area offers. More than 7 miles of Dukes Creek and its tributaries flow through the 5,562-acre Smithgall Woods–Dukes Creek Conservation Area. Although some stocking has taken place over the years, the current management scheme is dependent upon natural reproduction to replenish the population. Since the portion of Dukes Creek contained within the area is catch-and-release only, overharvest is not a threat. As one might expect, the glory days of everybody catching huge trout were short-lived, but fish of that size are still a fairly regular occurrence and the stream has given up specimens of more than 26 inches. Even if the lunkers have gotten harder to catch, plenty of 12- to 18-inch fish are available to keep you busy while waiting for the fish of a lifetime. Since Dukes Creek flows gently through a level valley, wading the creek is easy. The creek is large and open enough to allow careful flycasting. Key species: rainbow trout, brown trout.
