Sandy Smith works for the Atlanta office of Womble Carlyle. He has helped open a new office in Silicon Valley, helped many corporate clients find the legal and business advice they need to make their complex deals, mergers, and acquisitions happen, and worked well with his team of all-star lawyers to satisfy all client needs. Smith also loves to fly fish in Georgia. Here are his three favorite spots in the state:

  • The Chattooga River. A large freestone river that splits the border of Georgia and South Carolina, the Chattooga gives fly fishermen like Sandy Smith to get away from the office at Womble Carlyle and get out to the northeast corner of the state to find both wild and stocked trout. At the lower end of the river, there is a large delayed-harvest section managed by both states.
  • Noontootla Creek. Running down from a sheer ridge in Blue Ridge Wildlife Management Area and flows into the Toccoa River near Dial, Georgia in Fannin County, most of this creek’s public access can be gained from US Forest Road 58. You can find small stream fishing in the creek’s headwaters and larger areas for your nine-foot rod.
  • Smith Creek. This is the only delayed-harvest small stream fishing area in the state of Georgia. The public fishing areas of this stream are all inside Unicoi State Park. Be sure to stop by the state park lodge to pick up your free daily fishing permit.

Sandy Smith loves to take time off whenever his busy schedule allows at Womble Carlyle to find these excellent fishing spots throughout the state of Georgia.
