Doc--There is a book entitled "The Hatches" I think that
has a chapter on N GA hatches--He lists about 25 spp.
for june.I only have xerox pages no title or author.
I checked it out from the Auburn U.library.
Another book(it fits in pocket)is A Smokey Mountains
& Southern Appalachians Fly Hatch Schedule by Ken Snelling
and Graphic Spirit.For what its worth I have observed
2 hatches on N GA(excepting tailwaters)streams since 1960!
1 was at Russell's bridge on the Chattooga in July of 60(lt.
Cahill)I think,and 2 was in July on the Conasauga below Paint
Bank Gap it looked like a white miller hatch,1000s of moth like
insects with white wings and bodies were spent and covering the
the rocks at the base of some rapids--I took some nice RBs on
a light Elk Hair I did not have a white fly in the box.What I
am saying is,excepting Tailwaters,Hatches on NGA streams are few
and far between for this observer.However there is almost always
insects present even in winter over the water.Hope some else has
had a better experience than me with hatches.Tight lines-GRW
