    the Oconee River and the testing of the fish down around Dublin. It seems some fishermen have been concerned about the sores and deformed gills on fish coming from the waters down that way so the State biologists have been looking into the problem. Their opinion, there is no problem. Everything is a natural occurrence for the time of year and the species of fish. Stress from spawning and the heat is amplifyng the natural fungi, etc. The fish are safe. :eek:oooh: What is your take on the matter?

    I have not read any article however we spent a week fishing at Clark hill and the Ga. Wildlife Management team said that there were catfish with so called sores or what they said WARTS...... and that if we caught any to throw them on the bank and let the racoons have them and not to eat them or put them back in the water. Dont know if this is the same issue just giving you the information that was told to me.

    I didnt catch any so I really cant say that I have seen them.

    My .02 cents is spent lol
