Fishing and Fun at Firefly Fishing
Lodge & Retreat

Firefly offers a variety of fishing opportunities for all skill levels. For a nominal access fee, experienced fly fishermen can hone their skills fishing for Rainbows, Browns, and Brookies in our challenging, protected trout stream. Or they can wade the tailwaters of the famous Toccoa River from Firefly’s private access point. For a special rate, they can opt for a guided float trip on the Toccoa in our pontoon cataraft. Whatever the choice, we shuttle anglers to even the most remote access points on our hundred acres.

Novices can learn casting techniques with ground instruction, then practice in open areas of the creek. Or, our guide can continue casting lessons during a float trip down the Toccoa. Firefly offers on-property fly fishing lessons and experience for whole families through our “Learn to Fly Together” family package. Our unique location enables families of up to 4 to share an all-day fishing package, at a super bargain rate.

When guests of the Lodge bring their own gear, they can fish “their way” from our access point on the famous Toccoa River, without a guide. Experienced fly fishers can purchase a daily fishing pass in the creek for a small access fee.

At Firefly Lodge, you always fish in a pristine, private setting. We are the only place in the Southeast where you can fish in both the world class Toccoa River and in our private, trophy trout stream – all in the same day. With our great savings packages, you can’t afford to miss out on some of the best fishing in the north Georgia mountains.

Firefly’s guides are always available upon request, to assist with your fishing adventure. Guests who want to fish will need a GA fishing license with trout stamp, which can be purchased a
