In theory yeah if it was a non dammed river thermal pollution= thermal restoration. But there is no restoration going on and the river is still dammed and it is still a bottom release style dam which means it is an artificial fishery basically throwing your arguments out. But as troutbum69 said, save the carp! They do not do well with siltation as well.

The dam gives us an opportunity to restore the natural state through increased industry and jobs. Are you a communist that hates jobs?

Does it, though? Or does it just leave degraded trout habitat without actually producing the kind of temperature profile conducive to a warm water fishery?

More concrete and factories, more jobs, less invasive species. This is a no brainer for conservation. The dam is our pollution, but we get to counter it with the things we would normally consider bad. What an opportunity!!! Save the carp!!

Carp are just as sacred as brown trout are. Being that they're native to Europe, not north aneroca

North America*

In my opinion y'all are all blaming the dam but I think it's the lack of water flowing underneath it that's the issue. If there were no dam and the same development riverside then it'd be bass with gills full of sand instead of trout. Either way the dam isn't going anywhere. Best case, get them to send more water down(please Supreme Court do us right) and protect the riparian zones. But you're never going to have the fishery that we used to have below Morgan falls. Those days are gone and it wasn't a natural fishery so lamenting it in the lens of "conservation" seems silly to me. Stop buying nymphing rods and drive to LA a few times a year to catch reds. You'll be thankful to have the few fisheries concerns that we have here in Ga.

After much analysis on Google Images I have realized that I was indeed speaking on behalf of the noble Creek Chub instead of the Brown Trout. They sure do look similar. Either way I can't be wrong no matter what anyone says and my word is absolute law. Nor will I even give an inch to any hypotheticals or lacking evidence I might have as I have seen it all within this Earth.

Charles caught the biggest horny head I've seen at Raven's Fork. I think he feels a little more strongly for them than me haha.

Yes. I had the personal pleasure of beholding this beauty (or beast) last summer.
