The Toccoa River is the first place many think of first when they think of trout fishing. Running through the North Georgia Mountains, the Toccoa River is considered by many to offer the best selection of trout in all of Georgia.
The Toccoa River flows down from mountains near the town of Suches in North Georgia and continues through the Blue Ridge Mountains for about 60 miles to where it crosses the state line into Tennessee at McCaysville in Fannin County. Blue Ridge Lake is located approximately halfway between the Toccoa River’s origin and its exit point from Georgia. The section of the river above Blue Ridge Lake is known as the upper Toccoa and the remaining portion in Georgia is called the lower Toccoa. When the river crosses the state line into Tennessee, it is known as the Ocoee River.
The possibility of catching phenomenal trout, tubing, and kayaking are just some of the reasons so many individuals consider North Georgia for their next home purchase.
