Visit the Chattahoochee National Fish Hatchery

If you really want to catch a trout, or at least see a lot of rainbows, make a daytrip to the Chattahoochee National Fish Hatchery. Located off of Highway 60 between Morganton and Dahlonega, the fish hatchery raises a million rainbow trout each year to stock the tail waters, streams and lakes of northern Georgia. It is operated by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service

Visitors can tour the hatchery and visitor center, fish Rock Creek, have a picnic, take a hike or camp nearby at the Frank Gross Campground. A visit to the fish hatchery is "must do" for kids (and adults) who really want to catch some fish! Take your own gear and bait, and be sure to have a Georgia fishing license! The hatchery offers special group tours and sponsors annual fishing derbies for kids and seniors. It is also designed for use by school groups to teach students about the Southern Appalachian Ecosystem.

The Chattahoochee National Fish Hatchery is located near other mountain attractions, including Deep Hole and Cooper Creek recreation areas, the Benton MacKaye Trail and the Swinging Bridge. The hatchery is open year round from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. For more information, visit their website at http://southeast.fws.gov.
