View Full Version : I talked to the home owner
12-12-99, 09:28 AM
We've talked here some about the house at the shoals below the boat ramp. He was working in the yard and talked with me a while. Fulton Co. is tearing up his property working on sewers (remember the sewage-in-the-trench tread?). As someone said earlier, he doesn't mind fishermen at all, but asked that we stay on the road as much as possible. This runs counter to our earlier thinking of walking near the river to stay off his property. Just use the road.
I would also suggest that if you are walking along there and see the owner, make sure that you talk to him, make sure that you ask permission, and thank him for his kindness. I am sure that he does not mind, untill he starts getting huge crowds each weekend and messing up his place. Just remember to respect his property and if you see any trash there, pick it up. You would not believe how far this will go if he sees you doing that.
I also talked to the owner of the property.
He stated the same thing to me.
Please try to stay on the road and do not litter.
Caught and released 7 rainbows and 4 browns on 12/10/99.
Fishing was somewhat slow, there still seems to be an abundance of rainbows in this section of the river. Water temp probably low 50's. Spawn seems to be about over.

Hi Gary B ! welcome to the show.
When you guys say stay on the road, does that mean when you get to the "driveway", go right, away from the house? Seems like I rememeber someone saying that that road went around the house to the lower end of his property?! http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif Thaks

In response to OWL.
As far as I know, the gravel road runs in front of his house and then turns right up the hill next to his house. I think it dead ends at his house.
The owner would prefer that fishermen stay on the road in front of his house, instead of walking and creating a path on his lawn.

That road is that gentleman's driveway, and does indeed terminate at the house. In the other direction it goes up to the subdivision. Please tread softly, pick up some litter, and consider walking back upstream on the trail that runs up above the house on the bluff. If you get out of the water below him, below the "lunch rock" (very large flat rock just below his property) you will find that the trail offers a pleasant hike back to the ramp. Less traffic will help this pleasant homeowner to continue to allow the occasional considerate fisherman to get in the water from HIS property.
