Welcome to the Trout Art Trail!

No, you aren't imagining things. Those are indeed giant trout. The Trout Art Trail has arrived in Blue Ridge! The Trout Art Trail is a colloborative public art project between the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association and Blue Ridge Trout Unlimited, offering a limited edition series of nine five-foot fiberglass trout sculptures presented as a county-wide event. Very appropriate for the Trout Capital of Georgia!

You can help make the Trout Trail permanent by supporting the Blue Ridge Mountains Arts Association and enjoying music by country star Wade Hayes at a Firefly Music concert on June 24th. Tickets are available online at

Sponsorships of the Trout art pieces are also available for pre-sale starting at $3,500.  This includes sponsorship on all print and online media, permanent plaque listing their sponsorship on the statue, and two tickets to the June 24th event. Contact Nichole Potzauf at 706-632-2144.
