Trout fishing season just around the corner - WRBL

Trout fishing season just around the corner

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Callaway Gardens is getting the word out to anglers looking to reel in trout.

In a news release, the resort north of Columbus said select lakes will be stocked with trout ranging from 14 inches to trophy size of more than 24 inches in mid-November. Some smaller trout will be included for variety.

"Callaway Gardens is a great location for fly fishers who normally travel North to trout fish," said Michael Wall, fishing operations manager at Callaway.  "You can stay closer to home and, more importantly, spend more time fishing."

Trout fishing is available from late-November through March by booking a guided fly-fishing trip for up to two people for $250 per half-day or $350 per full-day, including lunch.  A third person can be added for only $125 per half-day or $175 per full-day. These rates include use of premium equipment.  Novices and experts alike are welcome.  For beginning anglers, fly casting instruction can be added to a trout fishing excursion for $30 per person.

 

Dates fill up quickly, so anglers are asked to call the Kingfisher Outfitters Fly-Fishing Shop at Callaway Gardens at (706) 663-5142, email fishing@callawaygardens.com or call 1-800-CALLAWAY (800-225-5292), ext. 5142.
