Fishing in the Toccoa River

The News Observer in the May 27th edition reports that the fishing is good in the Toccoa River below Blue Ridge Dam. Riley Gudakunst states that he has heard reports that fish are being caught in locations below the dam as far as Horseshoe Bend Park in McCaysville.

There will be approximately 20,000 fish released into the river between March and Labor Day. The river is stocked weekly until July 4th, and then will be stocked twice a month through the Labor Day Holiday.
For those wishing to fish the lower Toccoa, from Atlanta take I-575 until it turns into 515, and then follow 515 all the way to Blue Ridge. Highway 515 crosses the Toccoa River right past Roses and the Tin Loon Chinese restaurant.
