Editor’s Column Correction:


In my editor’s column in the “Green Issue” of Angling Trade (June ’08), I should have said that in some rivers there are now no wild, reproducing rainbow trout.  Obviously, there are rivers where the rainbows are still spawning.  Naturally, I heard a few comments in this regard.  But I also received scant few answers to my core question: Where is the fishing better now than it was 20 years ago?  I’m still looking for some examples for future stories…

  1. The entire northern third of Georgia is better now than it was 20 years ago. Twenty years ago, trout fishing in Georgia, outside of the Chattooga River, was pretty much a matter of following the stocking truck each week. Now, after 20 years of progressive management and a pro-active position by Trout Unlimited, we have a variety of great trout fishing opportunities. More year round streams, great tailwaters, wild trout streams, catch and release streams, trophy streams and delayed harvest streams. For improving angling opportunities, I don’t think any other state can compare with Georgia and what they have done here at the southernmost end of the Appalachians
