: : I am from Pennsylvania, and fish small mountain streams catching native brookies. Most run in the 3 - 7 inch range, any over 10 inches are considered monsters. I used to work with a guy from northern GA who claimed he caught "native" (meaning stream-bred I would think) rainbows. Another friend says he doesn't believe there are any self-sustaining trout populations in GA. Can anyone tell me which is the case. I don't want anyone giving away secrets, but If you can name a stream with stream bred rainbows I would appreciate it.
: In reply to the native trout populations, they
: are few and far between. There are small creeks
: that are usually unnamed that hold native
: populations of brook trout.(native not restored).
: While there are other streams that have been
: managed properly to bring back native brookies
: and also begin bows naturally reproducing. A
: couple of streams that are mentioned in literature
: , and also in some messages on this board, are
: tate branch, sandy bottom creeks, and coleman
: river. These creeks and river form the
: headwater of the Tallullah watershed. If you
: are interested in the location of these, or other
: areas, leave me an email message. I am not only
: a fisherman, but also a fisheries biologist, so
: if you have any questions, be glad to answer 'em.
