Default Recs for easy speck stream

I need to find a smaller stream to take my old rickety self to. I always gets frustrated on the streams I know because I can only wade 10 feet before the rhodo gets so thick I can't stand up so I can only fish 10% of the river. I'm not looking for someone’s honey hole, just somewhere easily wadable and that’s relatively easy to access (less than a mile easyish hike from parking). Also, not looking for trophies, but REALLY want to harvest something for the grill.

Worth a try, right?

If by ‘specks’ you are referring to southern Appalachian brook trout, there are not too many places in Georgia that are very easy. Easy being penetrating rhode, climbing a rugged stream gradient, walking a good ways, etc... in places there is easy to access holes, such as at culverts or stream fords.

If by your description you are referring to easy to access small streams to catch some trout for the grill, such as stockers, I’d refer you to the Dredger report. There are several small streams he mentioned last Friday that are easy to access, and have plenty of fish to wrap bacon around.

Oh, I'm just trying to mess around and get some brookie streams PMed to me. High gradient sounds excellent so long as it isn't rhodo hell. Much easier to climb with my MCL sprain than crouch.

I forgot about the McSpeck stream in Clayton. Because of the constant sunlight, those fish have magnificent coloration.
