  • Dredger's Weekly Report - Quick Holiday Fishing Report

    Best bets this holiday weekend: Delayed Harvest trout, Upper Lanier and Blue Ridge tailwaters trout, Vogel Lake trout, reservoir stripers under diving gulls, and some deep reservoir bass.

    Here we go:

    · DH Stockers
    Georgia’s DH streams received a pre-holiday redosing of fish, so this holiday week will be a great time to take a child or new angler trout fishing. The weather looks good. Just wait til mid-morning to arrive streamside, as the best fishing will be in that 11AM to 4PM window of highest daily water temperatures.

    · Chattooga Backcountry Copter Drops
    Kudos to all players in our thirty-year partnership of copter-stocking the Chattooga backcountry from Burrells Ford down to Reed Creek. USFS Public Affairs specialist Steve B posted a great note and video on last week’s stocking effort:
    Hike-in anglers will enjoy the backcountry experience.

    · Hooch DH Dosage
    Buckets flew yesterday as the biggest volunteer brigade of all time helped WRD staff to stock the Whitewater Park access of the Hooch (Morgan Falls) DH. Volunteers were pleasantly surprised by the contents of those buckets. More here:
