PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A DIFFERENT DAY OF THE WEEK AND TIME OF DAY THEN WE USUALLY MEET!

There will be no “meeting” this month. Rather, you are invited to our annual Family Pic-nic! The Chapter provides the fried chicken, plates, cups, silverware, and drinks. Please bring a covered dish and a chair to sit on. This would be a great time to bring a friend and introduce them to your Chapter!

At the picnic we will draw for the winner of the Mack Martin Rod Raffle.

At 6:30 pm on the Chattooga River in the parking lot on the Georgia side at Burrell’s Ford for Hot Dogs and all the fixings. Kathy and Charlie Breithaupt will bring all the food , including drinks, and do the cooking. More info here. 

 

Wildcat Creek Road Closed

A popular stocked trout stream in Rabun County, Wildcat Creek, will have its trout stockings delayed for several weeks this spring due to the closure of Wildcat Creek Road. The US Forest Service has closed this road due to a landslide that occurred this winter. Details here.

Rod Raffle!

Once again, Mack Martin of the Atlanta Fly Fishing School has graciously donated a custom-built fly rod and reel to the Rabun Chapter to be used for fund raising.
