Mountaintown Trout is a private trophy managed venue located just 60 minutes from downtown Atlanta. The venue maintains two miles of private trout water on a historic family farm just west of Ellijay, GA. The property was slowly acquired starting in 1894 and remains an active family farm today.

Mountaintown Trout is not a high-volume venue that pushes the environment and resources to its limits. Rather the venue provides a unique member guest experience for a select few partners that share our desire to help keep family lands and trout waters from future development. In return, we offer these special partners an exclusive experience within a low volume, high quality, trophy managed fishery. Many of our members utilize the venue for entertaining business clients as well as personal use. The really great asset of our venue is the proximity to metro Atlanta. There is not an easier-to-access trophy stream available in GA.

Why Mountaintown Trout?

Mountaintown Trout is the only venue in North Georgia that gives its members the feel of having their own two miles of private trout stream. When members book a date at Mountaintown Trout they have exclusive access to the entire 2 miles of trout stream for the full day of their trip. It’s yours and only yours for the entire day! No complicated membership plans, no designated assigning of sections, no time limits, and no worries about seeing anyone other than your guest and guide if you choose to have one. Memberships include guest privileges with every visit at no cost. Our members also have access to a private on-line reservation calendar. As a result, members have the convenience of reserving a trip from the comfort of their home, office, or smart phone. The venue maintains a minimal membership roster so most days are open and available for booking. Members also have the option of hiring a Mountaintown Trout approved-guide. An experienced guide can greatly improve the member guest experience by giving instruction, tying flies, netting fish, providing lunch, and photographing all the great memories of your trip. The venue is unique in that it’s members have access to electric golf carts provided by Mountaintown Trout. These four-seater golf carts allow members and their guests to quietly and easily access all 2 miles of stream.
