Move to Chattooga River[edit]

According to the USGS, the correct name of the river is the Chattooga, with Chatooga, Chatuga, and Chautaga as variant names. I will request that an administrator moves the article back to Chattooga River. -- Fingers-of-Pyrex 20:28, 2005 Jun 8 (UTC)

Agreed and done. olderwiser 12:52, Jun 12, 2005 (UTC)

Where to?[edit]

An article about a river that doesn't say where it flows to? How odd. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.146.44.165 (talk) 20:35, 4 June 2008 (UTC) chattahoochee river is fun to vistit because you het see the mountaions.--98.94.69.99 (talk) 01:00, 5 December 2012 (UTC)research team

Bias in the Rafting and Boating Section[edit]

It seems that the last paragraph of the Rafting and Boating section has a noticeable bias created by recreational paddlers. This should be remedied in the future. Willice0 (talk) 04:01, 16 January 2009 (UTC)


Agreed. The following sentence is highly biased:

However, the boating community continues to lobby for unregulated access regardless of what their impact might be to other visitors and wildlife. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Leedbruce (talkcontribs) 02:10, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

THIS HAS BECOME AN EDITORIAL

---- Consider this section:

"The 1976 Original Management plan, required for Wild & Scenic designation, restricted motorized craft and limited floating to the lower 2/3rds of the river. No justification was provided except to 'protect' angling and paddler 'safety', neither valid reasons to limit access to some users without equal restrictions on all users. A fishing lobby is seeking to reserve one section of the river for their exclusive use. A Pre-decisional Draft Environmental Assessment was released by the USFS in mid-2008 that offers limited boating access during winter months on only limited sections of the river, as the anglers requested. However, the fishing community continues to lobby for restricted access regardless of what their impact might be to other visitors and wildlife due to the stocking of exotic non-native trout. The Forest Service is expected to release the final decision on recreational use of the upper Chattooga in 2009. Hopefully, an equitable solution will be reached that treats all users equally."

To say that something is "not a valid reason" is to go far beyond what should be included in an encyclopedia entry. Likewise, at the end of the above section one sees evidence that some contributor feels aggrieved that owners of motorized craft are not allowed access: "Hopefully an equitable solution will be reached that treats all users equally."

The meaning of the name.[edit]

Ive always monitored this page to see what people say. and in the very beginning someone mentions a "legend" about a cherokee girl catching a trout and curses, and the name sticks. I have never heard something so dumb in my life, the name Chattooga has been accurately translated to "we crossed here" and an ambigous alternate definition of "river of white rocks" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.184.177.250 (talk) 04:57, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
