> Obviously, the Hooch below Morgan Falls is no longer a trout fishery, so why not there? Maybe we should start something like a T.U. group, but for smallmouth. What would DNR have to lose by at least giving it a try? If it proves to be successful, this could be great for the entire Hooch if the river ever gets too bad to support trout(and the way things are going, it may eventually get that way).

My thoughts exactly. If the stripers decide to eat all the trout stocked below Morgan Falls why not try smallmouths? They would probably fair much better against the stripers than trout and I believe, although I'm no biologist, that smallmouths have a much larger variety in their diet. I think most fly fisherman would love the chance at smallmouths. Maybe it would turn out to be as good as the trout fishing was in the 'Hooch back in the late 70's and early 80's.
