Thumbs up

Kudos, you beat me to it. I am going to move the thread to the "Events" forum up top but leave this in the Chattahoochee River" forum for a week.

Folks, you can talk about doing something for the river or you can actually do something for the river. Here is an opportunity to be a "doer". Sweep The Hooch is split up into three different segments; walkers, waders, and paddlers. Walkers walk the trails along the edge of the river picking up garbage. Waders get in the water and pick up garbage in the shallows where wading is possible. To be a wader, you have to own your own waders and wading boots. Paddlers move from one put-in to another and scour the river for hard to reach garbage. Paddlers have to provide their own kayak or canoe and be proficient on the river. Between the three, the Hooch gets a pretty good spring cleaning.

Trout fishers tend to be ideal for waders and many own kayaks for paddling.
