I flyfished the Chattooga this weekend, and caught 3 very small (@ 2"- 4") fish that I was unfamilar with. These fish rised and took a BWO, they had orange colored slashes on their gill plates, while the larger one had a few other orange markings on the fins. Can anyone tell me what type/species of fish these are ? I also came across a large school of nice size fish holding in a flat streach of water at the base of a pool lip. At first glance I believed them to be trout, but I got a closer look and they looked like some type of carp or sucker fish, they appeared to have a small sucker type mouth. Does anyone know this fish ? In gereral what kind of fish, besides trout, can you expect to find in the N.Ga. Mts ?
