Chattahoochee Forest NFH provides trout for delayed harvest
In a collaborative effort with the state of Georgia, Chattahoochee Forest National Fish Hatchery (GA) provided rainbow trout for the Delayed Harvest section of the Toccoa River in the north Georgia mountains again this year. Delayed harvest stockings are done annually from late fall to early spring, providing a captivating experience for anglers feeling the urge for some good trout fishing aside from the regular stocking months of March - September. The section is also a popular area of interest for groups such as Project Healing Waters, Trout Unlimited and the hatchery to introduce or recommend trout fishing for veterans, youth and families. Anglers can enjoy camping with sites conveniently located near the river within the Chattahoochee National Forest. More information about Georgia’s Delayed Harvest trout fishing streams is available from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
