    replied to Big wild brook trout question
    Well, for starters, any parasites in native, stream born brook trout would almost certainly be endemic to local waters, so there's little practical risk involved, especially since restorations are typically done using fish from sister streams in the same watershed....

    Phil, my understanding is that Georgia gets its brook trout from the feds in Erwin, TN, and those fish are DEFINITELY northern strain. It has proven incredibly difficult to rear SABT in captivity, one of the reasons for the glacial pace of stream restoration in GSMNP. I certainly believe that your...

    Big Local

    One of my buddies guides for an outfitter out of Cashiers. This means we only get to fish together in the winter, when he isn't running trips every day. We've both been mourning the tragedy of two consecutive rained out smallmouth seasons. I sorta called the shot last month and told him we had to get...

    I think you'll find you want a rod that will turn a fish a little better than a 10 footer for bass and redfish.

    Brown trout raised in tanks display high levels of aggression and eat the hell out of each other. For whatever reason, they retain more of their natural behavioral tendencies than hatchery raised brook and especially rainbow trout. Stocked brown trout adapt to natural environments fairly quickly and...

    Phenotype trumps genotype, and coloration of individual fish is largely a matter of environmental rather than genetic factors.

    The fin damage is suspicious. Virginia, for reasons having to do with the underlying geological substrate, more extensive habitat preservation and cooler weather, does produce very large wild specks. It's just that some of that looks like tank damage.

    That said, I know the guy that caught...

    What kind of fishing do you like? The Davidson is a wonderful fishery, but it's as technically demanding as any trout water in the country, and it will be bring your own rock over the weekend. You might consider some small stream fishing, which would give you more solitude and less picky fish. If...
