Each week Dredger (Jeff Durniak, DNR/WRD Fisheries Supervisor) puts together a report (Titled Dredger's Weekly Report) from all of his biologists.

Last week's report included:

The mountain lakes in northeast Georgia are known for their trophy spotted bass fishing. During this week of sampling, we collected several spotted bass weighing over 4 lb, like the one pictured from Lake Rabun. Spots are busting herring at the surface in the mornings and can also be found on deeper points in about 25-feet of water during the day.

Walleye are stocked by DNR into several north Georgia lakes. This week’s sampling in the mountain lakes found that walleyes are bunching up in downed tree tops in about 30-feet of water. Coincidentally, crappie are hanging out in the same structure. Submerged tree tops are easy to find by simply scanning the shoreline for large white pines with broken out tops. My suggestion would be to fish a medium-sized shiner slowly around the submerged branches. If you are lucky, you will come out with a double bonus – crappie and walleye!

The lakes below Seed don't have the habitat or cold water to support much in the way of trout.

They are better bass and walleye lakes than trout lakes.

Its not until you get way down the drainage to the head of Lake Russell, Hartwell Lake tailwater that you get into decent trout habitat again.
