Hey I'm new from Georgia. It would be nice to maybe connect and collect with people from Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida and North Carolina, perhaps from South Carolina, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Virginia too sometimes as I do not know many places to look at

Michael Wolfe is your guy. He will be along shortly. You are also in luck, the 2018 convention is in Georgia.

Welcome, and ditto what Matt D. said. There are also some characters worthy of spending time with in those other states, too.

Welcome Daniel.  I am your Georgia Region Rep and I am sure that I can help you.  I maintain an informal mailing list and can add you to that.  We get out every once and a while, and I am sure that we can connect you.  Now to be honest, we dont do as much around the holidays so it may be a little while until I schedule something.

 

Not trying to be stalky or anything, but let me know in general where you live in GA... we are a big state... notice how some of us list our location by watershed... it helps in lots of ways.

I'm familiar with the Tallapoosa watershed where my parents live in Alabama. I'm actually visiting there this weekend and will survey since it will be my last chance to looks at the creeks in that location as they are moving north to the Little Tallapoosa watershed. I now live in Douglas County, 30 min west of Atlanta, Chattahoochee watershed. Seems to be only one darter species here, which is a bummer, but I do look forward to finding the Chattahoochee Sculpin (Cottus chattahoochee) and Chattahoochee Crayfish (Cambarus howardi). No luck yet, but I believe I was able to find some Highscale Shiners (Notropis hypsilepis) so that was nice. I'm also wanting to go down to Heard County sometime to find a Chattahoochee Bass (Micropterus chattahoochae). Ahh so many biodiversity treasures here in the state like the Coosawattee, Conasauga, and Etowah

Nice, so you are not too far from Atlanta to join us on some of our trips around the area. the Chatt Scuplin are very nice looking fish.  I'm personally anti-crayfish, but that is just me.  I'm pretty sure you are right about Blackbanded Darters being all you are likely to see in the Chattahoochee.  But you have other options not too far off.
