Sparkling through the bustle

L. J. DeCuir, a recent guest on GORP's forum, tells the story better than anyone. "There are very few major urban centers in the entire world where you can fish for trout year around only minutes from downtown. The Chattahoochee River in Atlanta, Georgia is one of these places. With numerous wade and canoe/kayak access points along its length you can literally walk out of a business meeting and into the river in minutes."

Get the picture? The Chattahoochee runs lively and clean, giving Atlantans enviable possibilities for fun on the river. Besides fishing, canoeing and rafting is first rate. The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area protects a goodly swatch of this river.
