Folsom Bridge Landing (GA 122)

Hahira, Georgia

Folsom Bridge is the Little River takeout downstream from Cook County Boat Ramp.
Usually lots of mussels. Fish jump in the spring, and bed in pools in this idyllic blackwater south Georgia River.
For those from elsewhere: fish make beds for laying their eggs. The beds appear as round and slightly concave areas cleared in the sand, about a foot in diameter.

Directions: From north or south, take I-75, Exit 29, head west on GA 122, turn right on Wells Road, and immediate left down to the river.
There is no boat ramp; access is by the sandy river bank.

Lowest boatable 137? (4.2?), Highest safe 144? (11.2?), Gauge Hahira USGS 02318380 132.8?

Downstream, it's 25 river miles to Troupville Boat Ramp, with the Little River meandering through swamp much of the way.
The closer takeout at the next public road is actually not public, so we don't list it.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is essential right now. Follow the advice of the health experts. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Heading to the beach should only be considered an option if social distancing practices can be followed. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter the efforts to curb the virus’ spread.

For more information, please visit the World Health Organization public resource on COVID-19.
