No secrets there. If you plan to fish some secret streams, you need to look elsewhere. Wildcat gets pounded all year long.

I'm on the fence; I agree there has been a slow move toward naming more and more small streams. I think it started slowly with some obvious "in plain sight" streams and is starting to move gradually toward slightly more obscure streams. The good thing, I guess, is that most of the 'good streams' require a bit of moving, hiking, climbing, scrambling... and even if mentioned probably wouldn't get visited much more often than they might already. That being said, I hope that NGTO doesn't simply become a place where random 'googlers' can just do a search and come up with "great speck fishing on *_______* stream"
I don't foresee that happening.
I realize I am very new to this board, relative to a lot of y'all, but when I was searching for small streams I had to PM, research, learn the topo of the area and the most fun, just get out there and get on the water. There's been more than one occasion where I've showed up at the "Stream" only to find a trickle that rivaled a drip from my kitchen faucet; other times however, I've found unmarked waterfalls, after waterfalls - sometimes those barrier falls lead to SABTs, sometimes more rainbows and browns, and sometimes no fish, at all; not even a chub! But, for me, that's the fun part, not knowing and doing the research.
Wildcat is pretty much out there, heavily stocked and this might be a holdover stocker or a wild, either way, it's a heckuva fish!

But has anyone fished raccoon creek lately? How's the population of large brook trout above the silver comet trail?

Trust me, that population is just as you remember it.

If I know about Wildcat Creek, then it can't be a super secret stream.

I have a pretty hard and fast rule on reporting posts. If it's stocked, or mentioned by name in the DNR regs book, it slides. There are a few exceptions, but not many.

No matter how you slice it, Wildcat (in Rabun) is 100% fair game IMHO. Other than Rock Creek, it's about as close as you can get to fishing in the hatchery. It's literally a mile down the street. The locals sit in their trucks and wait on the stocking truck to come by, hop out, catch a limit, and leave.

I think it is ok to mention a creek if it is receiving a weekly stocking of trout. But that is just my 2 cents.

Most do, some put a limit in the truck, wait a little, go catch another limit. I used to get my boxers in a bunch by this, but I soon realized that it's gonna happen. I would rather keep the few wild streams that I have fished off the grid as much as possible. There have been a few mentioned on here lately that I would rather not see openly listed, but they are in Jacob's books, so its not like they are top secret.
Wildcat is a grocery store fish market.....
