Our Private Waters

Give Us A Call, We'll Hook You Up!

Farm on the Cartecay

This has currently been our flagship property for the last six years. It is a third generation 200 acre farm with some family members still operating it for cattle and goats just 15 minutes from Ellijay. Don’t worry as farm animals are kept fenced out of the river and nothing awaits you but the Fish. Enjoy the mountains with Stover Mountain looking down over the river valley. River holds a good population of rainbows and a sprinkling of browns. This ½ mile stretch is managed for trophy fish and is an outstanding resource for our Beginner’s Special and half day trips.

Frog Hollow

The Chestatee River through this old farm property is gorgeous. It boasts high numbers of stocked and hold over rainbows. It is more open when compared to most private waters. It is located outside of Dahlonega and is perfect for a half day trip.

Fern Valley

This private section of the Soque River is located only 4 miles north of Clarkesville. Their deep runs and larger water make for great trout habitat and easy fly fishing. They have rainbow, brook and brown trout. This property has room for up to four anglers per day and we can do either half or full day trips.


This private section of the Soque River is located outside of Batesville. Riverside can be a trout fisherman’s paradise on this scenic stretch. They have rainbow, brook and brown trout. This is another property which is perfect for a half day trip.

"Wow. What an awesome trip! I booked this trip as a Christmas present to myself and couldn't be happier. James was an excellent and patient guide. He made my experience as a first timer very fun and relaxing. I came away with a wealth of knowledge and can't wait to book another trip with these guys!"

"Great guys, big fish!

Great Service! The guides give great tips for beginners and experienced fishermen alike and of course, expect fish in the net! Give them a call, and prepare for an epic day on the water. Surely was for me!"

“James was right there to help me get the fish out of the net for photos and was also taking plenty of pics for us along the way - which he promptly emailed to us right after so that we'd have them. My boyfriend caught the largest trout he's ever caught here in GA. He was so happy at the end of our trip and has been talking non-stop about it ever since. A+++++++++ all the way around!!"

"My husband and our two teenage daughters booked a fly fishing trip with Reel’em In guide service during our summer vacation. We met the guides, James and Carter, who were just amazing. They demonstrated patience, expertise, and professionalism. I would definitely recommend booking a trip with them. We’re looking forward to doing this again with James an Carter as our guides."

"Went on a fishing trip guided by Dave Hulsey. It could not have been a better trip. It was my son’s first day on a fly rod. David had him catching fish in an hour. David was knowledgeable, patient and quick. I have used other guides in the area. David was head and shoulders above the rest."

"This was the best people that anyone could ask to be on the water with. James Bradley REEL-ly knows his stuff around the fly streams. Not to mention he is a nice guy."
