Suwanee Creek near Duluth, Georgia
Suwanee Creek is one of the largest tributaries feeding the Chattahoochee River NRA between Buford Dam and Peachtree Creek. The water of Suwanee Creek is fed by storm drainage run-off, as well as several small, unnamed creeks. For this reason, the water temperature of Suwanee Creek is generally significantly warmer than the Chattahoochee River.
One cane find rather large carp schooling at the mouth of the creek between the rip-rap beneath the bridge supporting a natural gas transmission line and the junction of the two bodies of water. The occasional bass and crappie may be caught here, but it is not a common occurrence. The carp are rarely caught by the many fishermen who seek to hook them as they pull into the mouth of Suwanee Creek on their drift downriver on the Chattahoochee River while fishing for trout.
Natural bait is not permitted on this section of designated trout water, and a trout stamp is required. This is the case even if your quarry includes only the carp that inhabit this immediate area of the watershed.
Fishing for carp here is very challenging, but there are those who know how to tease a carp into biting a fly, an for them, the experience is very rewarding. Trout, however, are rarely caught in the immediate vicinity downstream of Suwanee Creek since the water from the creek is too warm for their liking.
Consider a rating of 2 out of 5 to be close to accurate for this water.
