IT’S RAINING TROUT
by Steve Scott
Years ago I went trout fishing with my buddy Dale to the Nottely river in North Georgia near Blairsville. We were standing in the river fishing upstream in about two feet of water under the Highway 180 bridge. From where we were standing the bridge about thirty-five feet was above us. We were catching good sized trout averaging about one trout every ten to fifteen minutes. These fish were about twelve to thirteen inches long and were a good size for this location. All of a sudden it was raining trout. A DNR truck had pulled up on the bridge and dumped several thousand trout down on us. It was truly an amazing sight. We have talked about that day for years.
