Think about Little River
Taking Little River as an example; at the lake and up a couple of miles you will catch largemouth and smallmouth, then more smallmouth and rockbass.......and bluegill, then the bluegill and rockbass fade out and you have smallmouth and some trout. At some point below Metcalf you begin to catch trout almost exclusively. It is the temps. On warm water years the smallies move further upstream and vice-versa. I have caught some pretty ratty trout as far down stream as Walland below the bridge at Elijay (sp?) creek. I'm not a scientist, I just play one on television! And I stayed at a Holiday Inn Select once..............!
