One of the most scenic places in Atlanta lies within the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, just a short drive north from downtown Atlanta. Amid the skyscrapers and I-75/I-285 interchange, the Chattahoochee River flows south from Lake Lanier. It is considered one of the premier fishing streams for trout in Georgia. Each year, 150,000 trout are released into the Chattahoochee River and brown trout are naturally reproducing in these waters. Last weekend, I spotted several fisherman under the I-75 bridge. I stopped to watch the fisherman and to ask whether they had been lucky in their pursuits. (I later learned from a hiker on the trail that the river had just been stocked). As I photographed the fisherman, I reminisced about my childhood trips with family to trout fish in the mountain streams in New Mexico. Although I no longer fish, my 88-year-old father continues to do so with a passion. I live vicariously through the people I stumble upon with a fishing pole in their hands.
