The Fishing Wire: The north Georgia mountains make a great fall destination, and what better excuse to plan a trip than to take advantage of the many available trout streams, including five delayed harvest trout streams that open Nov. 1?
John Lee Thomson, Wildlife Resources Division trout stocking coordinator says, "The advantage of the five designated delayed harvest streams, open November 1 through May 14, is that they have special catch-and-release regulations and are stocked monthly by Wildlife Resources Division and our partner, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This combination of stocking and catch/release allows for good trout catch rates and high angler satisfaction. Furthermore, the current low flow conditions we are experiencing in North Georgia will make wading easier than in past years."
In addition to the excellent fall fishing opportunities that these delayed harvest streams provide, other Georgia streams offer ample trout fishing opportunities.
