It may be that corn people refer to those that fish
with corn.But I like to think it refers to moon-
shiners.Back in 1960 I was fishing the Chatooga
above Hy28 bridge and met 2 boys(one was a student
at Clemson)that invited to eat dinner with them.
There place(a log cabin)was where the parking area
on the SC side is now.I will not give the family
name for obvious reasons.About 6 months after I
had dinner with them,I learn that the father made
the best moonshine in Oconee Co.In fact a retired
Army colonel made a deal that if the old man would
supply him with all the moonshine he could drink
the colonel would see to it that the older son
would go to Clemson.-----It may be that trout go
after corn because it looks like hatchery food
but I believe they go after it because it looks
like eggs(salmon or trout).Trout are notorious
egg eaters and I think this is instinctive in
them--that would also account for why wild trout
will also go for corn.
