    Has anyone ever fished the Etowah for cats anywhere between Dawsonville and Canton? I would like to do a float trip and would like to hear from someone who has had experience with this area.

    I've only gone up river from Allatoona to (almost) Canton. It can get real tricky after that with rocks and such. The only good thing about that lesson was I now have a second prop. Had to buy a new one while the busted one was being rebuilt. I did land a 10 lb channel out of the Etowah up that way but he was one beat up dude. Blind in one eye and scarred like you would not believe.

    I would not use a motor if I tried it, I would just float from one point to another. I woud like to find out about some good places to put in and places to take out. Thanks for sharing what you know.
