Holly Creek Professional Review and Guide

"Flowing through the Cohutta Wildlife Management Area, this creek provides a good mix of easy access fishing for stocked rainbow trout and the chance at wild trout in its more remote upper reaches. Holly Creek is one of the better trout streams in northwest Georgia.

A combination of good public access and heavy stocking on the lower end make that section a favorite with families and those interested in a relaxing trout fishing trip. Farther upstream, as the creek veers away from the road, Holly Creek and its tributaries provide some challenging angling for wild rainbow trout. Typical of most Georgia mountain streams, Holly Creek is a small to medium stream and is better suited to ultralight spinning tackle than fly fishing gear. Key species: rainbow trout."

Looking for the perfect trout fishing spot? You may have found it! Holly Creek is among several targeted locations being stocked with trout by The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In 2018, Holly Creek was stocked for the first time, and stocking is expected to continue to fall. The hope is to end up with ten-inch stocked trout, which bodes well for anglers who love fly-fishing in Holly Creek and other waterways in and around the Cohutta Wilderness. As you fish the area, it would be great if you could post updates here so that other site visitors can get a sense of how things are going with this stocking project!
