The Soque is so productive because its stream
bed is marble/limestone which increases the pH
of the water and releases a lot of CO2. CO2 is
basically plant food which through the process of
photosynthesis creates a very strong food base for
the Soque.
Basically, the more alkaline a stream is, the
more productive it is, and the more trout mass it
can support.
I think that most of the Soque is private which
allows strict control over catch and release.
A lot of the streams in North Georgia
have this potential even the "Hooch". Just stop at
the Mark of the Potter just south of Helen and
take a look at their trout.
