About Your Guide

Fly fishing the Chattahoochee River is done best with Chris Scalley of River Through Atlanta. Chris founded River Through Atlanta, an Orvis-endorsed outfit, in 1994 after gaining inspiration from fly fishing the Rocky Mountain West. Since then, he and his crew have been fly fishing for Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, and other local species.

The mild climate of the Chattahoochee River and late spawn season are perfect for fly fishing anglers of all skill levels. The River Through Atlanta approach of Chris Scalley places customer service first and foremost, with an emphasis on passing knowledge of the fishery to anglers. Bonding and entertaining with family, friends, and business associates is unique to each customer experience.

The Chattahoochee River is one of three rivers in the world within close proximity to a major city, which has a thriving, self-sustaining population of Trout. While most people would not associate great Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout fishing with a major city like Atlanta, you'll be impressed with the extensive greenway park system that connects the many small towns along the Chattahoochee in the greater metro area with vast riparian areas designed to protect Atlanta's drinking water.

There are 48 river miles of designated trout water with over 9,000 acres of protected park lands managed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the National Park Service. The cool waters released from the depths of Lake Sidney Lanier at Buford dam provide an ideal environment for trout and other wildlife species. The flora and fauna abound along the river with frequent sightings of white tail deer, osprey, beaver, otter, muskrat, mink, raccoons and much more.

In the Fall of 2003 Charlie Ford landed the new state record Brown Trout which weighed over 18lbs. and rainbows in the 16 to 20 inch range are not uncommon!

What an awesome day! My son and I had an awesome day with Chris on the river. We now know how to fly fish and caught a dozen or so Rainbows to prove it. Thanks Chris!

Incredible intro class to fly fishing! Our guide Chris taught us all about the history of the sport, the design of the rod/reel and simple steps on how to make successful casts. I’ll definitely be booking a guided river trip with these guys!

I was given a trip for Christmas from my wife and took a friend with me who just started. We had an awesome time!! Chris is a great teacher and applied practical things that really helped us nail and hone in on some skills. We caught fish however even if we had not caught anything, what we learned and took away was very valuable......Back, Forward, release. :) Thanks Chris for all the help. We are looking forward to the next all day trip. Robert
