Highly Rated USCG Licensed fishing charter and fishing guide located in the heart of the North Georgia mountains
Welcome to Welch’s Guide Service located in the heart of the North Georgia mountains and located roughly 85 miles north of Atlanta and 81 miles south of Chattanooga. I am a USCG Licensed Guide and CPR/First Aid Certified with access to seven different lakes in three different states (North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia). The most common fish found in these lakes are smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, and spotted bass, which are all native to the lakes we guide on. In fact two of the lakes in which we serve, Lake Chickamauga and Lake Burton, are national-ranked big bass fisheries! Our trips start at just $300 for a 4-hour trip. Take a gander around the site and select the “booking” feature when you’re ready to hit the water!
