> Went fishing with my 11 year old son. I caught 9 rainbows and lost 4 in several hours of fishing. My 11 year old was pounding the water and getting frustrated. I tried to help him of course. What burns me, however, is another fisherman came and parked himself next to the pool that my son was attempting to catch a few trout. He told my son to leave and go upstream. After I found out about it I was furious. I looked for the guy(Good thing I didn't find him!) to discuss stream etiquette.
I was going to enter a post this morning about high water temperatures and the affects on trout. Planning on fishing the Chatooga or Tallulaha this weekend. Sounds like the trout are still somewhat active. My question is, are these stocked 'bows you were catching? does anyone know when they stock the Chatooga - it appears they only stoch below Burrells Ford, right ? how about the Tallulah?
