Fishing: Streams with excellent trout fishing are Chattooga, Davidson, Rock, Cooper's, Noontootla, North Fork Broad, Little Toccoa, Panther, Jacks, Soque, and Waters.
The big lakes all hold bass, crappies, bluegills, stripers, hybrids, and catfish. Lanier and Hartwell are both worth trying. Medium waters such as Chatuge, Rabun, Burton, and Nottely are also good bets. For a bass-panfish float, canoe the Oconee or Chestatee Rivers.
