I have read with interest the new book by Jimmy Jacobs regarding "Fishing Tailwater Trout in the South".
After reading about the success on the White River, Little Red, and Norfolk in Arkansas I wonder:
Can the sowbug be transplanted in the Hooch with the same success as in Arkansas?
Can the same type of vegetation that has proliferated in the White, be "sprigged" in the Hooch? Apparently this particular type of vegetation is tolerant of the fluctuating water levels of a tailrace. Maybe someone could bring back a five gallon bucket of sowbugs and grass from Arkansas. He he he ;-)
Could Ga Power and the Corp be convinced to put baffles on the turbine blades at Buford and Morgan, to aerate the water?
Could DNR be convinced to build weirs below the spillways to aide in aeration?
I know this takes big dollars, but I read where these measures have added millions of dollars to the economy around the White River as a result of the magnificent fishing in the area.

Anyway, food for thought.
