Default Help Me Out!

I'm working on the fishing report and adding links to trout tailwater dam releases. I can't find some that might be of interest to our website visitors. I would appreciate some links if you have them. Some examples might be:

Sipsy in Alabama
Dix in Kentucky
Hooch in Georgia
and other trout tailwaters in Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Arkansas, Missouri and others.

Thanks,

Byron

I don't about any of the Wva Tailwaters but the Cranberry river and backcountry were where I cut my trout fishing and backpacking teeth.
An intresting web site is www.cranberryriver.com . Its been 30 years since I have been up there.

I looked just for a minute to see what I could find for AL and GA. All I could find were links that had phone #'s to call for the schedules.

I don't know if you'll even want to use these, but here they are...

I think Buford Dam begins the Chattahoochie tailwater near Atlanta... the others I'm not that familiar with. Hope this helps....Sorry, I don't know which tailwaters are actual Trout waters in surrounding states. The following is basically information overkill, but hopefully someone can help name the Trout-laden tailwaters.

Default Here's some

You have most of the relevant links and the best GA site (NGTO). The two numbers for the Chattahoochie are Buford Dam (water from Lake Lanier to Morgan Falls Dam) is 404-945-1466 for the generation schedule. It is year round and artificial only in a stretch below Medlock Bridge. The stretch from Morgan Falls Dam to I-75 (last take out and the winter delayed harvest area) at Paces Mill is 404-329-1455 for generation.

The USGS National Water Info system can give you the most current info on these areas as well as the Chattooga Delayed Harvest area. The only problem is knowing what the numbers mean. If you ask on NGTO people will usually clue you in to what safe wading numbers are for the area you are concerned with.

Byron- thanks for running a great site. I don't post much but I read it daily. My mother doesen't fish but also reads it daily since she is such a big fan of the Smokies. Her and my father were in the store on Sunday and asked for some light colored fine dry fly dubbing since they were up there and as always your staff was of great assistance. She also ordered all my stuff for Christmas from you and it was better than any service she could have had anywhere else. I love the shop and look forward to my next trip up that way.

Default Virginia tailwaters

I was thinking there was a Smith River in Virginia, so I google'd and found a reference to "Virginia's only 3 tailwaters" but the link was no longer active. Smith is below Philpott Dam. There's also Jackson River below Lake Moomaw.

Default Smith River VA

Grew up on the Smith. Great sulphur hatch years ago.

Accessed from Bassett/Martinsville. There is plenty of camping and used to be plenty of big fish. State record browns for many years back in 70/80's when i fished it.

Doesn't the Jackson have that big black caddis hatch?
