You never know if they might not be there, who would have thought Stephens county would be such a prolific Brookie destination?

Habitat fragmentation may actually be their death knell over all else.

We could always stoop to reservoir/spot/bluebacks bucket biologist skullduggery... I never would, but I'd certainly feel better about in that instance.

This is true...

The streams on DF I'm referring to had Brookies until the late 90's when development in the headwaters silted them out. Also messed up the bow fishing in the main creek for a while. The bows have made a comeback. The Brookies will need a little redneck creativity in the form of a cooler in the winter, a minnow bucket, and a few buddies. Shhhh. Just our little secret.

There are; however, some large mudpuppies that skirt out of the way just right to fool you for a few seconds if you're far enough away. One steep walk out if you're going back up.

I was looking into it and we have had some work done in the past 10 years but it was expensive. If anyone had 300k to spare I'd be happy to head up a project =)

For those of you who enjoy exploring streams you need to read Mark Oleg's trail reports. Great informational resource for getting into remote areas. This young man goes more places in a year than most of us do in a lifetime. Here is his Georgia list https://www.hikingtheappalachians.co...tegory/georgia

Absolutely. They help keep the water cold.

Seconded - he goes way off the map, so be ye warned (and prepared) with an overnight kit, water filter, compass, map, etc.

There are other communities of people out there who search for "undocumented" waterfalls in remote places, which are good places for finding specks ... and the waterfall hunters often maintain discretion comparable to here. So there is still the joy/frustration of the searching...
