  • Hooch Holiday Stockings

    Folks in case you didn't read Dredger's weekly (you really should and learn to read between the lines there are usually some awesome hints in it) the tailwater was stocked for the holiday.

    It was apparent at the dam the last few days, but I believe base on his report JB and IF were recipients of new trout as well.

    The Chattahoochee River below Buford Dam was stocked with some 10 to 14 inch rainbow trout today for the upcoming holiday weekend. River water quality has improved abruptly over the last two days and the long-awaited Lake Lanier "turnover" has finally happened.
    Dissolved oxygen levels in the upper river now are more than adequate for stocked trout survival and feeding, so this week would be a great time to try your luck at places like Buford Dam, Jones Bridge and Island Ford. River temperature this morning (12/19) was 12.3C and DO was 8.9ppm.

    In addition the DH received a special stocking:

    · Special Hooch DH Stocking
    Last Friday, December 15th, Gainesville Fisheries and Buford Hatchery staff delivered a total of 2,000 Brown, Brook, and Rainbow trout to the Chattahoochee River DH. This stocking was in partnership with Sweetwater Brewing Company as part of their “Stack a fish, stock a stream” campaign. Over twenty volunteers from the Sweetwater Brewing, National Park Service, and local anglers and guides bucketed trout at Paces Mill to provide additional holiday fishing opportunities to Georgia’s metro trout anglers.
