Although I as well have not noticed a decline in
trout population, I do find it humorous that
you describe a "good" lure to use as
"trout colored crankbaits"
: The Stripers below Morgan Falls are definitly a
: big plus to the phenomenal "Hooch" fishery, although
: many will not share that opinion. The fact is they haven't
: had a hook in a 20 lb+ fish that is trying to rip
: the rod out of their hand.
: There are a number of spots on the Hooch that hold
: stripers consistently. Atlanta's sewage discharge at
: Six Flags (wear rubber gloves), Peachtree Creek, and
: Morgan Falls are just some of the areas. Six Flags
: is usually the first place to have Spring strippers and last
: spring it was loaded with 6" to 8" baby stripers.
: The striper program at Morgan Falls doesn't get hot
: until early summer.
: I haven't noticed a decline in the trout population
: below Morgan Falls. In fact, the quality of the fish has
: improved over the last couple of years. Not as many
: stockers and more fish in the 14" to 16" range.
: My biggest striper has been 26lbs 7oz. The average
: fish is 12 to 16 lbs.
: The best baits are live shad, 6" sassy shad, and
: trout colored crankbaits.
: With the natural reproduction occuring now, hopefully this
: spectacular fish is here to stay!
