    Anyone fish the Hooch North of Atlanta? I live in Duluth, fairly close to Lanier but really close to the Hooch near Medlock Bridge, and Holcomb Bridge. States Bridge too but I don't think there is any bank access there (I don't have a boat).

    I'm kinda tired of driving all the way to Lanier, and wanted to try the Hooch. Doesn't seem deep enough for any fish of size, but figured someone here might know.

    Thanks!
    :)

    I went to Medlock Bridge today, looked like a decent spot but signs everywhere that said artificial bait only from Medlock to GA20... I didn't stay, and just headed over to Lanier.

    Yea, I had assumed that too - but wasn't positive. Really didn't look deep enough anyway.

    my brother lives over in roswell near the hootch. ive also wondered if there were any flatheads north of atlanta. I've read on here that they are down near the westpoint area, so they may be spreading on up to buford dam? I've checked the river out near the roswell area.....a lot of the river is shallow shoals, but there is a few stretches that have a lot of wood along the bank that look like bigcat habitat.......i guess there's no way to find out unless dnr does some studies, or if one of us fishes it...

    We fish the hootch a lot albeit south of atlanta but the water is shallow there
    we have been catching flatheads and channels in 3 to 6 ft of water. It couldn't hurt to load a line and toss in a wait a bit. What will you lose, couple hours:wink:
