Upper Chattahoochee Chapter #436 - Trout Unlimited
July 2014 


How appropriate to have our meeting speaker this month on warm water species.  It's a tough time of year for Georgia trout fishermen.  So come learn how to be a better fisherman for our summer time friends.  And hear Chapter members tell where and what they are fishing for.  We'll have a report from July Fishing Dayz in the Cohutta's.  I know some members have been to, or are going to Canada.  And I've just returned from the East Cape, Baja, Mexico.


Lest we get too far removed from trout, however; there is still time to sign up for and join us for a morning of trout stream restoration of Martin Branch on Saturday, July 26.

And finally, Tuesday we will know who the winner of the Orvis "Superfine" fly rod.
