Wildcat Creek Road Closed

April 1, 2019

A popular stocked trout stream in Rabun County, Wildcat Creek, will have its trout stock- ings delayed for several weeks this spring due to the closure of Wildcat Creek Road. The US Forest Service has closed this road due to a landslide that occurred this winter.

The US Forest Service has indicated that the public can still walk the road to fish and camp but, for safety reasons, it will remain closed to vehicles for a short period while repairs are made. CLICK HERE to find more information regarding road closures on the National Forest.

GAWRD’s scheduled weekly trout stockings will resume when the road is repaired and reopened to the public. Need more trout info? CLICK HERE.

But, why? The hatchery is preparing for a renovation, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division. More details here
