Trick or Treat

Click for a good look at some nice fish!
Here's a treat from Anthony Rabern via Jeff Durniak:

We sampled Lake Burton today (10/19) and caught a variety of quality fish.  Burton brown trout, like the one pictured in the attached photo, should be moving into the tributaries in November to prepare for spawning.  The one pictured weighed four pounds.  Spotted bass were very abundant in our sampling gear today, especially in the shallows on the upper lake.  The area around the Hwy 76 was particular productive.  I would imagine that spots, trout, and walleye would chase a crank bait in the morning or early evening hours for the next several weeks.

Anglers should also remember nearby reservoirs such as Rabun, Seed, And Tugalo, for some good fall fishing for bass and walleye.
