Default Dukes Creek Fishing Shut Down For The Summer

Just called to make a reservation at Dukes and was told they are shutting the fishing down until Oct. 1. Since I had not seen an announcement anywhere on this, thought I'd pass it along.

I believe this was mentioned in another thread that last wednesday was their last open day. I could be wrong though. Glad though, hopefully it should keep the fish in decent health.

They're just stocked fish any how.
Why not just let people take them.
They eat pellets, right?

This isn't a DH. They will survive the Summer. As long as people aren't stressing them catching them through the Summer.

Yeah I know, but why not let them "survive " on their own, they'll be fed through summer, right?

The true trophies that make it and adapt to stream life, now that's a catch of a lifetime, because for as little as I know I bet that would be one smart trout, tough to trick.

Because you would most likely kill everything you catch. Can we not keep one catch and release only stream in Ga?

Noontootla is also a defacto c&r stream


Good for the DNR doing right by the resource

Defalso! Only if less than 16 inches. So there is the possibility to keep trout from Noontootla.

I think a C and R stream would be great, I just think it's wasted on stupid pellet pigs. Why not do c and R on hooch tailwater, or a few headwaters streams. You know a real resource not a man made ecosystem

And I know the hooch tailwater technically man made, maybe all streams that way but I think you get my drift
