Winter fly fishing comes to Callaway Gardens | News
COLUMBUS, GA - Colder weather means it’s time to welcome trout, and trout fishing, to Callaway Gardens.
Select lakes again will be stocked with trout ranging from 14 inches to trophy size of more than 24 inches, with some smaller ones 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.”
Winter trout fishing at Callaway also is a great option for those who usually fly fish for bass and bream during the warmer seasons but want something more challenging to do in the colder months. Fishermen in the South will find the waters of the Gardens’ 12 private lakes create perfect conditions for enjoyable Winter 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.
