Private trip guided by Southeastern Angling

Southeastern Angling 20-29 years of experience


Fly Fishing Coastal Georgia’s vast estuaries around St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Sea Island, and Cumberland Island can be great year-round. Schools of redfish offer some of the best fly fishing opportunities found on the east coast.

Winter months bring cooler temperatures and larger schools to shallow water flats. You can expect to be able to sight fish redfish in clear water with schools ranging from just a few fish to larger schools upwards for 100 fish. Winter is one of the best times to fish for red drum in Coastal Georgia. Coastal Georgia can be a fly fishing enthusiast’s dream with quiet flats that receive minimal pressure.
