Reclassification of Georgia Trout Streams has been in the works since the DNR, EPD and our General Assembly put their heads together after Rep Ralph Twiggs' two bills were retired without a vote. The two most prominent streams to be declassified are sections of the Chattooga and the Chattahoochee.
The question we should all be asking is when will the next huddle take place and the decision made to declassify a couple of hundred miles more?
Perhaps all of the trout fishermen who use this sounding board should delay the spotlighting and advice, and become informed and active in conserving, protecting and restoring our cold water fisheries.
> news of this type is starting to get real alarming. When are we going to take back control of our resources and protect the few natural places left. I guess when it gets to the point of downgrading the chattooga to a catfish and carp river maybe something will happen.
> PS - went to Utah last weekend and did well on the middle provo river.....wild browns mean and fiesty getting ready to spawn.
