Having never been up to the Chattooga I would just like to clarify the DH section. Does it start at the 28 bridge and is it accessible right at the bridge or do I have to take one of the trails further up? What should I expect as far as the water? Wide flat and open or steep deep and fast? Any input is appreciated.

Chattooga Delayed Harvest begins at the GA Hwy 28 bridge and extends upstream to the mouth of Reed Creek. Yes, it is accessible right at the bridge. Or you can:

Option 1 - park at the Hwy 28 bridge on SC side. Walk up the trail a couple hundred yards, cross the river at a well-used crossing. Fisherman's trail up the GA side.

Option 2 - park at the gated road on GA side. Walk up the gated road to fields.

Just go - you'll figure out how to get on the water.

The river is wide enough for fly casting, lots of riffles and runs, ledges, and pools.

If you enjoy fishing the Chattooga DH, please support these organizations. How? Purchase a GA trout license plate and join Trout Unlimited!
Excellent news sir! Thanks for the update!

I made it up to the Chattooga for the first time yesterday. Parking areas were all pretty full but didn't see anybody on the river. Started on the SC side, crossed over at the end of the fields and went up maybe another 1/2 mile. Must not have gone far enough. Did catch a couple of rainbows though. Will definitely go back.
