Blue Ridge Trout Fest Lodging

Trout-fishing enthusiasts and others who enjoy the magic of the great outdoors will focus their attention on Blue Ridge, Georgia during the upcoming Blue Ridge Trout Fest & Outdoor Adventures, which is scheduled for April 29-30, 2016.

Blue Ridge sits in the heart of the official “Trout Capital of Georgia,” Fannin County, making it the perfect setting for the event, and Blue Ridge Lodging association is proud to support the fest by offering professional, local logistics expertise and knowledge in addition to “trusted accommodations.”

Happening just 90 minutes north of the hustle and bustle of Atlanta, the fest offers outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds the chance to experience world-class trout fishing in some of the finest cold-water streams and rivers on the continent.

Blue Ridge Mountain Trout Unlimited Chapter 696 shares the presentation and concept of the festival with the Fannin County Chamber of Commerce and Southern Trout Magazine, ensuring that the event has true local flavor in addition to popular appeal across the region – and the whole country.

“Our goal is to attract fly fisherman and outdoor enthusiasts to Blue Ridge and the ‘Trout Capital of Georgia’ to promote trout fishing and the responsible use of North Georgia’s natural resources, attract tourism and raise funds for Trout Unlimited and its programs that benefit our community.” -Ralph Artigliere, Education Director, Blue Ridge Mountain Trout Unlimited Chapter 696

Blue Ridge Mountain Trout Unlimited also seeks to raise money to improve and expand its education for all ages on conservation and trout fishing, Artigliere says, while also exposing the local reach of non-profit exhibitors such as Project Healing Waters and Goodwill Guides (veterans’ associations), Georgia Women Fly Fishers, Casting for Recovery, Trout in the Classroom, Benton-MacKaye Trail Association, Save Georgia’s Hemlocks, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the Chattahoochee National Fish Hatchery, and more.

The Blue Ridge Lodging Association will be providing essential support to the festival, sharing knowledge, experience and equipment. For five years, we have produced the popular “Blues and BBQ” festival in downtown Blue Ridge, and our expert ability to stage successful events will help ensure that attendees get the most out of their time in the jewel of North Georgia.

“The synergy among our various community organizations is fantastic and rewarding. As trout aficionados visit our area, they can depend on the Lodging Association to provide ‘trusted accommodations’ each and every time.”  -BRLA spokesman Greg Spencer
