Noontootla Creek Fishing
Noontootla Creek Farms (NCF)
Noontootla Creek Farms is located about 15 miles south of the city of Blue Ridge. For over 60 years, it has been a privately held family farm consisting of over 1,000 acres. At one time, this property held over 1,600 acres. Originally a large farming operation and then a private hunting club. It is now open to the general public with two miles of trout water. Reel Em In Guide Service has been fishing this property now for well over a decade. Our professional guides know every inch of this fly-fishing paradise like the back of their hands!
Fly-fishing at Noontootla Creek Farms is unlike any other private trophy water due to its small stream experience that’s unique to the North Georgia Mountains. This stream runs about five degrees cooler than the others in this area and is a north facing stream which allows NCF to stay open year-round. This stream also clears faster than others after a major rain event, which is usually within a day. This medium-sized freestone stream supports wild reproduction so there are no stocked “pellet pigs” here. Insect hatches in this stream are superior when compared to others and it will probably have some of the largest winter brown stoneflies you’ll ever see. This is due to the water being pure and of the highest quality. You can tell this immediately after landing your first trout here. The trout have amazing stamina, and their brilliant colors and the full fins on these stream-bred Browns and Rainbows far exceed the trout on other properties.
Fly-fishing NCF is more technical in nature than the other private trophy waters. The use of a guide is required on this property and there is a 5 wt rod minimum. Due to the complexity of this stream, we highly recommend no more than two anglers per guide. Unlike other guides in this area, we want you to experience the very best that NCF has to offer. This is a high-quality trout fishery that is enjoyed by all for both its beauty and the way it fishes. Our pro-guides will not only watch out for your safety, but they will use their vast knowledge and experience of this stream to help you have an epic day!
The challenges faced by anglers at Noontootla Creek Farms are tempting large wild trout with a fly, the stream being tree lined and canopied, and at times, high fishing pressure. Trout will range from the year of young around 5 inches up to an amazing 30 inches while the average will be around 18-20 inches. Rest assured that no other guide or guide service has the number of hours onstream teaching and coaching their clients here like we do. The goal here is to hook up and the reward is to land a “trout of a lifetime”. Our pro-guides will teach you a host of tricks to tempt a trout into taking a fly, casting in and around the canopy, and to fool the biggest trout this water has to offer!
