I caught this in my back yard on December 17, 2017..I believe it to be a trout but have no clue what kind of trout it may be..I live in extreme South East Tennessee.. As a matter of fact the TN/GA line runs through the center of my house.. The fish was 22″long and weighed 3.5lbs
Can anyone help me identify this fish as the GA DNR and GA outdoor news staff have been unable to at this point.. Thanks
