The Wildlife Resource Division of the DNR will hold a public hearing in Gainesville on Thursday, July 23rd at 7:30 PM at the Holiday Inn on Jesse Jewel Parkway to receive input on proposed changes to the fishing regulations which will be considered by the Board of Natural Resources at their August meeting.
Several proposed changes will be considered; among them is dropping some designated trout waters that do not support trout from the list.
This sounds innocent enough but how many of these streams do not support trout because they are silted in from development and the cover from trees and undergrowth has been removed right up to the bank? As these practices continue, will there be another meeting in a year or two to remove still more designated streams from the list.
Who decides which streams will be removed from the list? Politicians? The National Association of Home Builders? Other developers?
If you can't make the meeting, write Mike Ginning, Chief of Fisheries, DNR, 2070 US Hwy 278 SE, Social Circle, GA 30025 and express you views.
