Welcome fall season by fishing on the Soque River
Annual celebration has outdoorsmen cast their lines in Clarkesville
Participants in the Fall Soque Celebration at Blackhawk Fly Fishing show off their catch.

To inhale the smell of the fall season and hear the serenity of a river flowing, the Fall Soque Celebration at Blackhawk Fly Fishing on the Soque River is the place to be.

The fall party will be at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18, on the river to benefit the Soque River Watershed Association and its projects that protect and restore the Soque River. The event will include dinner, drinks, river tour, fly fishing demos, silent auction, and a slideshow.

“Blackhawk is a place on the Soque that everyone knows where it is, but few have actually gotten to see,” SRWA Executive Director Justin Ellis said. “One of our goals with our events is to show people places on the Soque they probably wouldn’t get to see otherwise.”

The site also features a farm that grows crops sold to Whole Foods.

Individual tickets are $15. Each ticket enters the purchaser’s name in a River Raffle Prize Package for two. One person will win a one-night stay at Glen Ella Springs Inn with breakfast, a canoe or kayak paddle for two on the Soque River, $50 lunch or dinner certificate at the Attic in Clarkesville, and lunch for two at Sweetbreads in Clarkesville.

Tickets for the raffle may be purchased even if you are unable to attend.

Tickets are on sale now at the SRWA offices in downtown Clarkesville or online at Silent auction donations are encouraged.
