About:

Jasus Cree is a freestone, campground creek that is one of the head water streams of the Chattahoochee. It’s the type of creek that you want next to a campground, it is simple, nicely structured, and it is heavily stock. I personally fish this creek every time I go fish the upper sections of the Chattahoochee River because of those facts. It can be troublesome for those that are just learning how to fly fish (it is loaded with Laurel bushes), but for those that are experienced mountain trout fly fisherman Jasus creek can be rather fun and very fruitful. 

Realistically there is not much to say about Jesus creek because it is a head water creek. Over the half of a mile are that is stocked there are a couple areas that have very deep holes and long runs, however it is mostly short runs to drop offs, and riffles. Make sure you are fishing these short runs and riffles after a recent stocking, this is where you will find the trout that have moved up stream from the stocking holes.
