Thanks for the reply. As much time as I spend in the waters of the Ocoee, guiding rafts, I probably shouldn't worry about eating the fish. Interestingly, I did some snorkling on the rafting section, looking for treasure (watches, sunglasses,etc), and was surprised to find some blue-gill, sunfish and bass! Any river without any moss/algae has to be suspect. It may be getting cleaner but the ph is obviousley off. I know there is a group of concerned citizens fighting Champion Paper in N. Carolina, on the Pigeon River, we need something simmilar here. It's never to late to clean it up for our grandchildren.
