    Ron,
    I have a friend that works for the Waycross DNR office. His name is Don Harrison. You can call him at 912-285-6094. He can send you maps of the river and also give you more information on blues in the Altamaha. From what I have heard, there are some blues starting to show up in the upper reaches of the Altamaha. I think they are still few in numbers but you should catch plenty of channels and flatheads in between. Good luck...

    There is a few but if you want to target them I would look into the Canooche

    I caught one the other day right where the rivers come together that weighed about 8 lbs. Thats the biggest blue I have personally seen around here. I was tld that they would take over and even kill out the flat heads one day, but I find that really hard to believe..
