Default Lake Burton Trout/Walleye

Forgive me if i am in the wrong forum.
I moved here a few years ago from Wyo...

I have been to Burton a few times trying to catch some Trout/walleye.
I had assumed that it was basically the same techniques I would use back home on the lake, Rooster Tails, flasher dodgers etc..trolling in the boat...

I have caught a bunch of nice Hybrids or spots or whatever they are called, but not a single rainbow or walleye!!

any advice or tips would be very much appreciated...

I have a fly rod that I also would like to use to explore the streams... if i remember how to use it!

Here is NGTO member fredw with a Lake Burton Brown from 2008. You will have to ask him how he caught it. Big stocking of Browns were put in Burton 10 or so years ago to control the herring population. Should be some bigun's in there by now. http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/foru...ad.php?t=68074

I think the DNR put out a link on catching Burton trout.

Here it is:

If I wanted to catch trout or walleye in the Tallulah chain of lakes, I would probably spend most of my time on Lake Seed. Most locals will tell you it's the best lake in the chain for various reasons.

Is this a boatable lake? it looks fairly small, maybe shore fishing is better? I do see a boat ramp though...
thank you very much!

I would love to do some fly fishing, but it seems a lot of the creeks around N Ga are on private land? I live W of Atl if that matters...

I am a TU member as well...
