Upper Chattahoochee Chapter #436 - Trout Unlimited
October 2014


We have some important events coming up in the next few weeks.  On October 28 we are having our annual fundraiser, Autumn on the River/Fly Fishing Film Tour.  In addition to showing some of the best films from the Fly Fishing Film Tour, we will be auctioning lots of fly fishing equipment and a number of exciting guided trips to local fishing destinations. Our sponsors include The Atlanta Fly Fishing School, Blackhawk, Fly Box Outfitters, Fern Valley on the Soque, Orvis, Kevin Arculeo, Hal Coleman, River Through Atlanta, Patagonia, Oyster Bamboo, Walters Fly Rods, and Unicoi Outfitters.  With the famous Henry Cowen as auctioneer, it should be...unpredictable but a lot of fun!  Included with your ticket are pizza and salad bar, two drinks and eligibility for a number of great door prizes.  Please join us for a night of fun:  no business meeting or speaker - just eating, drinking, viewing films, auctioning and mingling with your UCCTU friends.


We don't often have a November meeting, but this year on November 10 we will have a special joint meeting with the Georgia Women Fly Fishers at Ippolito's.  This will give us an opportunity to learn about each other's events and activities, and will hopefully lead to more collaboration between our organizations.  It will also be our only opportunity to hear from the DNR about the proposal to keep more Georgia streams open to fishing year-round before the deadline for public feedback closes.  Please join us for our last meeting of 2014.

 Guide's Corner- River Through Atlanta


Fall is here and it is time to get back out on the Chattahoochee River! we are already seeing a marked increase in catch rates of brown trout. The GA DNR stopped stocking rainbows on Labor Day, so there are fewer stocked bows competing for your flies and the shorter cooler days of autumn are triggering aggression among our brown trout. In October, we will begin seeing Salmo Trutta dominating our numbers of fish to the net. Because of our mild climate, "Brown-Blitz" spawning bite will run through Decembers, peaking in November. It's been almost 12 years since browns have been stocked on this 35 mile stretch, so if you are not experienced in this phenomena, please join us on our pursuit of these wild, stream-bred, beauties.

Kevin is happy to report that the fish was caught and released on the Kazan River while visiting Kasba Lake Lodge in Northwest Territories, Canada this past summer.
