Default Finally made it past the dam to fish the Hooch WMA

Family camping/fishing trip these past couple of days. We ventured into the WMA and was not disappointed. Fish were picky but we did manage a fair amount. Can someone that fishes the lower WMA tell me if this would be a stocked brown/hold over brown or stream born???

Nice brown. I'd guess holdover. Love that stretch of river.

A couple miles north of Helen. Go thru Helen to the flea market at Robertstown. Left over the bridge, immediate right. WMA begins a mile or so in and is marked.

Regularly stocked with some limited natural reproduction. Managed as a typical put-and-take fishery.

Frequent bear sightings.

The cool thing is the WMA has both easy access areas and very difficult remote areas. Take your pick.
