  • Nice brown on Wildcat today

    Caught the biggest brown I’ve ever had on a hook today at wildcat. It was 17 degrees and the water beads were freezing on my line, but I was able to pull a nice little 13” out on a honey worm!

            Great post. Which Wildcat Creek was that, Rabun or Dawson County?

                  Wildcat Creek is one of the most heavily fished trout streams in the entire state. Everybody knows about it, an everybody fishes it. It is heavily stocked throughout the season, and maintains a fairly healthy population of wild rainbows and browns as well. It is no super duper secret stream. It is heavily written about as well. No secrets there. If you plan to fish some secret streams, you need to look elsewhere. Wildcat gets pounded all year long.

                    Was my thought when I posted about it a while back. But apparently it too is on the no name list. Recently there's been a few streams named and described in detail. I think it's time to cool it on that

                      I'm on the fence; I agree there has been a slow move toward naming more and more small streams. I think it started slowly with some obvious "in plain sight" streams and is starting to move gradually toward slightly more obscure streams. The good thing, I guess, is that most of the 'good streams' require a bit of moving, hiking, climbing, scrambling... and even if mentioned probably wouldn't get visited much more often than they might already. That being said, I hope that NGTO doesn't simply become a place where random 'googlers' can just do a search and come up with "great speck fishing on *_______* stream"
                      I don't foresee that happening.
                      I realize I am very new to this board, relative to a lot of y'all, but when I was searching for small streams I had to PM, research, learn the topo of the area and the most fun, just get out there and get on the water. There's been more than one occasion where I've showed up at the "Stream" only to find a trickle that rivaled a drip from my kitchen faucet; other times however, I've found unmarked waterfalls, after waterfalls - sometimes those barrier falls lead to SABTs, sometimes more rainbows and browns, and sometimes no fish, at all; not even a chub! But, for me, that's the fun part, not knowing and doing the research.
                      Wildcat is pretty much out there, heavily stocked and this might be a holdover stocker or a wild, either way, it's a heckuva fish!

                        But has anyone fished raccoon creek lately? How's the population of large brook trout above the silver comet trail?

                          Trust me, that population is just as you remember it.
