Has anyone ever fished the Hiwasse? I'm interested in the section below the lake in Polk Co.- before you get to the popular section where all of the rafting/tubing goes on in the summer. Most of the water in that 15 mile strech is in giant tubes, going to feed the power plant. But there is alot of runoff from the surrounding mountain, and the stream looks great. The question might be if it ever totally dries up in the summer, and even so, wouldn't some natives drift out of the moutain streams?
This is related to another question I have. How far might a trout move in its life, upstream or down? If I catch trout, or smallmouth, on Fightingtown Creek in GA could they have come upstream from the polluted section of the Toccoa in Copperhill TN?
