Flint River remains one of the most undisturbed river systems in the entire Southeast, according to brochures that can be found at Sprewell Bluff Park. Over 200 miles of continuous river flow from just south of Hartsfield Jackson International Airport down to Lake Blackshear in southern Georgia.
It remains one of the last bastions for the “shoal bass,” a specific subspecies of bass that can only be found in the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee, and Flint River basins, according to SherpaGuides.com.
However, a new type of bass has begun popping up in the Flint and while it is native to the Southeast, it is an invasive species to the Flint River. The question then becomes, what can be done to remove the invasive fish?
