Palmer Henson is an angler from Georgia (also appearing in episode 3), who has spent the last few years trying to hunt down as many brook trout streams as he can in Georgia. Sarah Baker is a Fisheries Biologist with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources who focuses on trout. Palmer and Sarah have been working together on a sort of “citizen science” project, in which Palmer’s personal passion for finding remote brook trout streams assists the DNR with their surveys. In this episode, Palmer and Sarah discuss how they got connected, how they’ve been working together to uncover new brook trout streams, and a few ways the DNR will be able to use the data to protect this iconic species.
