I parked at Burrells Ford Bridge and hiked and fished my way up stream to a point called Ellicott Rock (about 3.5 miles). Ellicott Rock is a stone marker at the point where North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia all intersect.
The Chattooga is a hatchery supported river with the South Carolina State hatchery located on the East Fork of the Chattooga. The Chattooga is known for having very large brown trout, some up to 27 inches!
It is also famous for being the location where the hit movie "Deliverance" was filmed.
I did not catch any large brown trout but I did catch one small brown and a couple of nice 11"-12" rainbows.
I am trying to learn to fish using nymphs. So this day was nymph only day. I caught all the fish using a #20 WD40 nymph.
Here is a nice paw print left in the sand near the waters edge. It is from the black bear which is native to this area.
