This river is awesome!!!! Says Michael Sparks

I caught my biggest bass ever today. I was a 5 lb largemouth bass. I caught it with a zoom rubber worm. Says Michael sparks

The little towaliga river is an excellent river to fish in and to ride a boat throw. Me and my friend ride in it all the time its a blast. Me and my friends have noticed that the best bait to use in this river is worms. We've
    caught so many different types of fish: for example brim, blue gill, bass, catfish, and either a pike or a jack, silver carp, rainbow trout, and even eel. We also catch turtles like: snapping turtles, alligator snapping
turtle, soft shell, stripped turtle. There is also otters in the back of the river where it's calm. We've also seen these big pink birds their bout 5 ft tall. A good bait for the catfish is cut up brim. There is no telling what else is in this river. It's outstanding. I'm Michael and I'm 14 and I recommend that if you like to fish and ever come to Forsyth you need to give this river a try, trust me you'll have good luck....... Says Michael  

Have paddled several streams in area, including high falls from below horseshoe rapids to GA 42. Very similar to lil' towaliga - very shallow, rocky, bumpy ride... High water makes for better ride but can be dangerous with rocks, sharp bends in channel w/ falls, rapids around corners, watch out for snakes and (...). Says scott ingram

The average Georgia whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. The beautiful scenery of Monroe County and the water flowing gracefully down Little Towaliga River attract people from near and far.
