Upstream from Morgan Falls Dam then yes, they can be “wild” or river-born. Below the Dam, not so much. The water gets too warm to sustain a large trout population; brown, rainbow or brookieswhicharereallycharandyoucanlookitup.

Browns are not stocked above Morgan Falls. So those would be stream born although some will argue that they are decedents of stocked fish.

Semantics at this point as the fish above are essentially turning into their own gene pool. The browns occurring from Morgan Falls to Buford Dam are also of a different strain than what is stocked for the DH. All the photos I have seen indicate some healthy looking fish so far gents!

The only reason they'd be a different strain is if the State of Georgia started importing different strains which I highly doubt.

Lol, big enough to avoid the stripers. Did you know that anglers use 16" gizzard shad to fish for stripers? I doubt there are many browns or bows anywhere in the river that can avoid being eaten simply because of their size. I would assume avoiding the stripes is more a function of stealth than size.

Having said that, I caught a holdover brown last weekend between the ramp at paces and the bridge. Probably only 12" long.

How often do they stock this section during the DH season? Planning going today after work since Last Friday had some good fishing

@Baldea, it was talked about extensively in this particular paper actually. From what I gather off of this paper was that the strain commonly used by the federal stocking program went up against some other strains to figure out which performed the best in the fishery. Walhalla won over the Plymouth Rock Strain. Good read regardless. I would be interested to hear @Splatek16's opining as well due to his science background.
