It's been a couple of year's since I fished it, but the last time I was there I caught wild brookeis in the Coleman River (which really isn't a river but a fairly small creek). There's a fish barrier up a ways from where the Coleman runs into the Tallulah River that keeps the rainbows and browns from encroaching. In some pools I'd see 5 or 6 fish start for the fly and would catch the one that got there fastest. They were all little -- but that's the way most wild brook trout are. What they lack in size, they make up for in their willingness to take a fly and it's special knowing you're fishing for true natives of the North Georgia Mountains. I'm sure there are other streams that still hold brookies. Would be interested in a report if you find "the spot" and would share your secret. Tight Lines!
