Monthly Meeting – June 22
June 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Speaker: Sarah Baker, Fisheries Biologist of Georgia DNR
Trout Fishing in Georgia
Sarah is the trout biologist for the GA DNR’s Wildlife Resources Division. She developed a passion for trout while conducting research as an undergraduate in Biology at The College of Idaho. She completed her Master’s in Fisheries Science at Auburn University. She has been tromping through streams with electricity for the past 8 years in search of answers related to salmonid population dynamics, habitat utilization, riparian restoration, and nonnative species interaction. Sarah is originally from Idaho and spent the majority of her childhood hiking under Tamaracks and through wildflower fields. Now, she hikes under hemlocks and through rhododendron. She has worked extensively with trout in riverine systems in Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Washington, Alabama, and now Georgia. She absolutely loves being outside with her husband and enjoys running, hiking, backpacking, hunting, and of course, fishing! She will be giving us her tips and tricks for how to fish for wild and stocked trout in Georgia, as well as an update on trout management in Georgia. The north Georgia mountains have a lot to offer, including native Brook Trout! She has fallen in love with Georgia’s mountain streams and flings flies into them every Saturday that she can.

We look forward to getting back to our freshwater conservation activities, fishing day outings, and group gatherings as soon as TU national gives us their approval.
