: I'm a recent (but avid) newcomer to NGTO. Did I miss something earlier about stripers below Morgan Falls. Is this new? Are they a danger to the trout population as they were above Buford Dam? What size do they run?

In the late 80's they put stripers in WP lake and of course they went upstream
and all indications are they are spawning.Recently 4 4"inch fish were sent to Auburn
3 were confirmed as stripers and one was a Hybrid.Last summer we caught lots of
14-16"stripers in WP and below the WP dam!Since it was 92 when the state stopped
stocking stripers because of the pressure of trout fishermen who had seen these
stripers feeding on trout.By the way your state people think that someone may released
these small stripers in the Hooch.Yea and my dog, Harold, built a spacecraft and
flew it to the moon today.GRW
