Your guide to the Chattahoochee River
At the center of our chapter's mission is the wonderful Chattahoochee River. Both revered and endangered, it is among the southernmost major trout fisheries in the United States and the only one that flows through a major metropolitan area. To get to know the Chattahoochee better, articles on Wikipedia and the New Georgia Encyclopedia will tell you its geography and history.
Like any tailwater, it's always wise the check dam releases. Current Buford Dam water release information is available at 770.945.1466. For those who like to use a canoe, kayak or float tube, here are some float times for popular trips. The river roughly flows at four miles per hour, to calculate time down the river.
