Soque River Records


Soque River

Georgia's Soque River has gained fame in trout fishing circles for producing trophy rainbow and brown trout. Almost all of the river is private, although access through commercial fishing lodges is available. Small stretches are public within the Chattahoochee National Forest. A portion of the river is also within the Tray Mountain Wilderness. The Soque River and its watershed are located entirely within the county boundaries of Habersham County in northeast Georgia. The Soque is a tributary of the Chattahoochee River. Portions of the river run along State Route 197.
