Known for providing world-class fishing excursions on the spectacular Soque River, Brigadoon Lodge has over a mile of private water in North Georgia and was even ranked the #1 trout fishery in North America. This privately-owned trout fishing lodge offers fantastic Soque River fly fishing, a catch-and-release activity that helps keep this stretch of the river clean and cool while providing one of the highest fish counts in the country. Surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest, the lodge is perched right on the river bend and offers stunning views of rock cliffs, caves, and waterfalls that provide a beautiful backdrop when casting a line. The next time you’re in the area, spend an afternoon at the Brigadoon Lodge and see what you can catch!
Plan a Trip to Brigadoon Lodge
Just a short 20-minute drive from Glen-Ella Springs Inn, Brigadoon offers wonderful outdoor experiences in the heart of the North Georgia Mountains. Before you head out, stop by the Fly Shop where you can sign up for fishing lessons, classes, and clinics, or gear up with custom rods and reels, a full selection of premium hand-tied flies, waders, and other equipment. Then get ready for a fun day out in the Georgia sun! Here are some things you’ll see at Brigadoon Lodge.
Seven flowing springs and creeks feed the Brigadoon section of the river, offering breathtaking views in every direction. This area is especially beautiful in the spring when 300-year-old mountain laurels, azaleas, and rhododendron are in bloom, or when the leaves burst with shades of orange and red in September, October and November. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
Trophy trout fishing on the Soque is a popular hobby among anglers, with water temperatures that are ideal for supporting large numbers of trout and local fishing businesses who re-stock the river and feed the fish to maintain their trophy size. At Brigadoon, guests can experience the thrill of hooking 30-inch stream-bred trout, including brown, rainbow, and palomino species. A private guide will lead you to one of the 12 exclusive sections of the river where small and fast mountain streams can provide an intense battle between you and the giant fish. Hold on tight!
This internationally-acclaimed fly fishing destination also released Brigadoon Lodge FlyLine Wine, a series of carefully-selected wines including Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, and Pinot Noir varietals that are perfect for sipping after a day in the water. Made in California, FlyLine Wines are now available at restaurants and retailers throughout the Southeast as well as California, Colorado, and Montana.
