Dahlonega is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and one-third of the county is in the Chattahoochee National Forest, making Dahlonega a great place for trout fishing. All of the streams described below are easily accessible from Dahlonega, and contain stocked rainbow, native rainbow, and brown trout except where noted. However, the trophy trout population in the streams has been sharply reduced in recent years by the encroachment by otter. A valid Georgia Fishing License with a trout stamp is required. Holders of an honorary fishing license do not require trout stamps.

The abundant mountains, streams and wildlife found on Chestatee are what sets it apart from other WMAs across the State of Georgia. Enjoying the outdoors for residents of White County or those traveling through to visit Helen or the Appalachian mountains is closer than many realize. Generally, the more maintained campgrounds on Chestatee require some form of registration on site; however, in many cases, you simply find a good spot that is open to camping and throw up a tent. Chestatee WMA enforces a strict rule on time allotment for camping; for example, an established campsite is limited to 14 consecutive days, in other words, two weeks, and this campsite cannot be reestablished by the same person until a period of seven days passes.
