Default Chattooga DH stocking

Just a heads up... the Chattooga DH is being helicopter stocked today. Lots of big, pretty brood fish in the mix. It has already been truck stocked once.

And a reminder: there is no boating allowed through the DH section at any time, at any flow level. Boaters must take out at Thrifts Lake and may put in at the Hwy 28 bridge. If you have any conflicts with boaters - or any other user group - please report it to the US Forest Service, at either the Walhalla, SC; Tallulah Falls, GA; or Franklin, NC offices.

Does the fact they they are helicopter stocking imply that is is being stocked further up from the 28 bridge, but below BF?

Today's stocking is for the DH section only. There will be a helicopter stocking of the section between Burrells Ford and Reed Creek later this year. It is made up of smaller "put and grow" fish.

The stocking on Thursday was both DH and back country fingerlings. The back country loads are mostly fingerling brown trout with some larger rainbows and brook trout mixed in. This is the only Scdnr heli stocking for chattooga until next year. Gadnr will also be conducting helicopter stocking sometime soon 😉

It's interesting that the Georgia DNR site shows all streams that are stocked and how often they are stocked. the West Fork of the Chattooga River is listed. The Chattooga is not. Where do we find information about the partnership between the two states that you reference? Interesting.

Dredger (WRD Regional Fisheries Supervisor Jeff Durniak) sends a weekly column in the General Info forum that often references partnerships.

Also, check the weekly reports on WRD's blog http://www.georgiawildlife.wordpress...tegory/fishing

Thumbs up The Stockings

Well, I don't have a GA TU tag, I don't have a GA or SC non-res license and have not been to the Chattooga in years. But. The Chattooga will always have a warm spot in my heart as my favorite river to fish when I lived in GA. So I do what I can for the river every January at a gathering of like minded rustics in Dillard, GA and spend as much money as I can!
