Chattooga River

Description

Description

The 19-mile stretch of the Chattooga National Wild and Scenic River is known for its history, whitewater rapids, and meandering, mountainous woodland passage. Its lower passage is considered among the best of whitewater trips, with heart-thumping Class III to Class VI rapids.

And while the Chattooga may be the most popular, it is not the only refuge for mountain trout. Oconee County’s Chauga River also offers a multitude of coldwater runs, riffles, pools and flatwater that play host to a wealth of both native and stocked fish. Again, fly fishermen may want to con- sider using a guide of these rivers.

For adventure, scenery, fishing (it has been listed in Trout Unlimited’s “America’s 100 Best Trout Streams”), camping or even just a lazy day, the Chattooga is a rare experience  one of the reasons it is a federally designated Wild and Scenic River.

Though the area is beautiful and often peaceful, the currents and undercurrents of the river can be dangerous. Guide services
are recommended, and please note that the National Forest Service has regulations for use of the river. Three companies are commercially licensed to operate on the Chattooga by the Forest Service, and they provide instructional clinics in whitewater canoeing and kayaking.
