Movement and Growth of Wild Brown Trout in the Chattahoochee River below Lake Lanier, Georgia

SEAFWA Journal Volume 4, March 2017

The Georgia Wildlife Resources Division (WRD) conducted a tagging study from April 2011 to May 2012 to study growth of wild brown trout (Salmo trutta) in the Lake Lanier Tailwater section of the Chattahoochee River. Sampling occurred monthly at four sites and fish were tagged with VI- Alpha tags on nine occasions between April 2011 and March 2012 for subsequent recapture. Follow-up samples in June and December 2012 confirmed a lack of movement between sites by any tagged brown trout that was seen in the previous samples. Growth increments between tagging and recapture events were...

Trout Population and Temperature Monitoring within Nantahala River Bypass Reach, North Carolina, in Response to Recreational Flow Releases

SEAFWA Journal Volume 3, March 2016

Recreational flow releases were established within the Nantahala Bypass Reach through the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission relicensing of Duke Energyâ??s Nantahala Project. In 2012-2013, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, in conjunction with other resource managers, attempted to monitor the influence of recreational flow events on wild rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and brown trout (Salmo trutta) populations within Nantahala Bypass Reach and Nantahala Tailwater. Monitoring included temperature loggers and fish population sampling. Temperature effects of release...

Effect of Trophy Regulations and Reservoir Discharge on a Population of Stocked Brown Trout in a Large, Southeastern United States Tailwater

SEAFWA Journal Volume 3, March 2016

Reservoir tailwaters can be an important resource for developing quality trout fisheries, especially when managed with special regulations. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a 508-mm minimum-length limit and a 1 fish day-1 creel limit on increasing abundance and size of the brown trout (Salmo trutta) in the Cumberland River below Lake Cumberland, Kentucky. Annual stockings of catchable-sized brown trout remained relatively stable throughout the study at approximately 31,000 fish (503 fish km-1). The purpose of the new regulations, which...
