    I think we need to introduce striper into the Buford tailwater to take care of this herring introduction!

    I saw some blueback herring yesterday both live ones and dead ones in the tailwater yesterday.

      So does that mean I should go somewhere other than the tailwater to fish this weekend? I don't have a streamer rod... Maybe the Toccoa? Anybody been there lately?

        I didn't have any luck tossing streamers the other day - although having it break off my weak little nymphing rod didn't help, I guess. Buggers have been doing ok, but really, I've still been having luck on smaller bugs. The bows that are still left will crush a well presented bug; the browns have been getting after them as well.

        I will be interested to see if our study shows an increase in fish bones in the guts of the browns as a function of date. I sure hope they ARE eating those herring so that they get chunky, fat, and grow... I'm ready to swap from 6x to 5x, or 4x in order to wrangle in larger, on average, browns... that would be awesome.

        All that being said, you might want to avoid the TW because with this weather, I would predict the tube hatch would be in full swing. Last weekend it wasn't terrible: a few folks shared beer and one girl tried to climb in the boat (I have that effect on women, BAHAHAHA), but this might be the last hoorah for tubers... Makes for good slalom, just ask Swamp Angel

            Stripers up around Suwanee Creek were rumored several years ago, don't know if there was any validity to the rumor or not. There was a very large white carp in the area that could have been mistaken for a striper.

            But before you wish for stripers north of Morgan Falls, remember they think trout taste like chicken.

                Fishmonger and I both saw the Stripe at SC back then. Was a good 5-7lb fish.

                  But, big browns beget baby browns, striper just eat and run or possibly produce more stripers.

                    Stripers go through dams so there are probably some north of Morgan Falls
