Book a lake trip in May or June and you'll find the guides of Reel Angling Adventures can cook up some spectacular ultralight- and fly-fishing action with the fish of your youth!

Beginners and experts alike ... everyone enjoys the fun they have when they join in on the fastest fishing action found during the late spring and early summer months. Panfish!

And not just any little ol' fish.  Bluegills, green sunfish, shellcrackers, redbreasts, long-eared sunfish, scrappy white bass and channel catfish found in the lakes of the Appalachian Mountains of northern Georgia and western North Carolina are feisty slabs! We're talking about bream commonly measuring 9 to 12 inches and white bass that top the 3-pound mark!

Pan Fish Fun on the Lake

Pan Fish in the Mountains

Pound for pound, the panfish of the lakes in the North Georgia
mountains fight harder than any other game fish! Fun for you!
Fun for the kids! They're willing and ready to take your best placed
bait or fly. In fact, there may be no better time to wet your first fly line than when targeting the spring and summer runs of panfish.

White bass get started in April. Bluegills start bunching up in early
May. Green sunfish pick up the action with the full moon of early
June. And channel catfish round out the fun when they move to shallow water under the early summer sun, before the action for all
of these species continues through August.
