About:

The one thing about Warwoman Creek that stands out above everything else is that this creek reminds me of the Andy Griffith Show, I can just imagine someone fishing this creek on a regular basis with a worm can in one hand an old cane pole in the other. But this is about the only good thing about Warwoman Creek. 

Warwoman is what I like to call a sandy bottom, farmers creek. One that always stays extremely stained and… well is ugly as piss. You can also tell that this creek is very prone to flash floods, the bridge you have to cross over to get the public section of Warwoman is probably the scariest looking bridge I have seen in Georgia. If you do go here just know that Earls Ford road (the road where the public section is located) is a dead end road that ends abruptly into Warwoman Creek, I would not advise trying to cross it unless you have an amphibious tank.

 Honestly I was let down by the idea of this creek. I thought just because of its location in North Georgia that it would be like the Talluah or North Chattahoochee, instead I got a warm water bass creek that the State of Georgia has decided to stock. I caught one stocked rainbow and left. I can see locals loving the idea of a stocked stream right in their back yard, even if it is shit, but to travel from Atlanta to Warwoman Creek is not worth the time and money.
