    Interesting. I didn't know brookies were found that far south. Thought they were more of a northern fish (New England, Mid-Atlantic, Canada etc.).

    Our high mountain streams are the only place you can find native populations. The native Brookies don't get much larger than hand sized, the introduced Brrokies can get rather large though.

    There are a bunch of streams in the higher Sierra here where the brook trout
    only get to 8 or 10 inches. Seems to have more to do with available food
    supplies than anything else. They still taste pretty good, though.

    Yeah, small streams = small fish, the most part.
    Before we started stocking only the small spring fed mountain streams were cold enough through the summer to support Brookies in Georgia, which are basically the only trout native east of the Mississippi. Rainbow were imported from Washington state and Browns are native to Europe. Both of which would be considered invasive species if they were not so delicious and fun to catch.

    I hear that jcharr are almost as delicious as bass.

    If you live in Georgia and fish trout, then you need Jimmy Jacobs' book gospel.

    Another book every Georgian on this board should own: Fred A. Birchmore's Around the World on a Bicycle. Fred gave rise to the term "Fred." Note that the real Fred ate Python instead of trail mix.

    Python is a bit hard to come by around here. Can I substitute Eastern Diamondback instead?

    So long as you dispatch it with a machete, then it would be ok.
