Weekly Fishing Outing this week

Our Foothills group lead by Parks Davis made a trip to Cherokee, NC to fish the trophy stream. Parks said that they saw some big fish and even landed some of them.  Here's some photos of one that Parks landed earlier this week.

Check our fishing outings on our page or better yet, send Parks an email and ask to be added to his weekly blast of where and when they are going each week.

2017 Seniors Fishing Rodeo - June 2nd

This is a friendly reminder that the 2017 Seniors Fishing Rodeo will be this Friday, June 2, and the Family Fishing Festival will be Saturday, June 3. Both events will be from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. We are asking that volunteers please arrive by 8:00 a.m. Upon arrival, please stop by and sign-in at the Education Center and enjoy some coffee and doughnuts.

We are looking forward to two great days of fishing and connecting people with the great outdoors! These events are possible thanks to the continued and generous support from Friends of the Hatchery, volunteers, community, vendors, Blairsville Trout Unlimited #692, Blue Ridge Trout Unlimited #696, Georgia Foothills Trout Unlimited #629, Gold Rush Trout Unlimited #733, (all other Trout Unlimited chapters/members), Georgia Forestry Commission, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Old Reel Collectors Association (ORCA), North Georgia Taxidermy, Xtreme Christian Outdoors, Sav-A-Lot Food Store Blue Ridge, Pepsi-Cola, Coca-Cola, Dunkin Donuts, House of Prayer Blairsville, Blairsville First Baptist Church, and the list goes on and on. The dedication is great and widespread and we thank you ALL. If we ever miss thanking someone, it is purely accidental so please let us know. We sincerely appreciate EVERYONE and ALL you do! Participants appreciate you, too! We often receive phone calls, cards and comments about all the good things you do to help make these events very successful each year.

Hope to see you Friday and Saturday!

Thank you,
