Helicopter Stocking the Chattooga

November 11, 2013

Helicopter stocking the Chattooga River is accomplished through a cooperative effort by the Forest Service (supplies the manpower and helicopter), Rabun Chapter and GA Council Trout Unlimited and Atlanta Fly Fishing Club (pays for the helicopter flight time), and GA and SC Department of Natural Resources (supplies the fish).

Please support Trout Unlimited through your membership and donations in order to continue the helicopter stocking. Also express your appreciation to the State and Federal agency personnel for their work.

If you fish the Chattooga River, remember to fill out the Angler’s Diary:

The results of the diary give evidence to the agencies on the effectiveness of their efforts.

See you on The River!

Parking and access to the trails going up both sides of the River got a little better this summer thanks to the USFS folks and four of the local TU chapters in Ga and SC. More details here.

No easy fix for felt!

Felt is a superior wading sole, but it’s also a transmitter of aquatic invasives. Sadly, there’s no easy fix. It’s on anglers to clean their gear thoroughly. A very important read from TU National.
