Winter time is a great time to come and visit the mountains of beautiful North Georgia. The fall air is cool and crisp, the mountain views are tremendous and unbelievably clear, and the nights are perfect to set up with a campfire outside, or beside the fireplace inside. In the mountains of Blue Ridge, Georgia, you will find that a lot of the trees have lost their foliage and you can see more and more places that when the leaves are still on. With that help from mother nature, getting a Blue Ridge Mountain Cabin Rental
, makes for a great time to relax and experience the splendors that the area has to offer. You will be able to see wide open views of the mountains while sitting in hot tubs on the porches, or while grilling out with friends. Also, in the winter time, the wildlife are extremely active. Believe it or not, it is some of the best time for fishing. The trout in the Toccoa River tail waters are in the slow down mode, but this also means that the chance for a bigger trout, in the 10 pound range, are better than ever. So slow down and take your time, but get ready to hold on. Make sure and contact Blue Ridge Fly Fishing
and get a guided trip on the Toccoa River, Noontoola Creek, or one of the other fabulous North Georgia Trout Streams.
Also, great times can be had on the pure mountain waters of Lake Blue Ridge. You can get a guide and go on a trip or try your own luck by renting a boat from the Lake Blue Ridge Marina. This is the time of year to try and catch them deep. The bass have migrated down to deeper depths andare much more lethargic than in the spring and fall feeding frenzies. However, if you can locate them, this is the time to put on a spoon or a drop shot and pull up a big one. Also, the Walleye are in good season right now as well. You can find them closer to the head of the lake now.
Other outdoor activities in Blue Ridge for the winter would include hiking, horseback riding, and taking scenic drives. For hiking, if you’re like me, I want a reward at the end, like a waterfall. Some of the most beautiful water falls can be found in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia. From the 720 foot tall Amicalola Falls, to some of the many others that are available. Take the time to visit this special beauty, after all it is the tallest waterfall east of the Mississippi River.
