Those of you who are outside of Tennessee probably didn't hear much (if anything) about this....

Might want to read the posts in the above link from Big Sur & Joe Congleton.
There's some pretty important info there, and some links and advice for preserving the tailwater fisheries in Tennessee.

Flea is not the best bassist of all time.

Thanks for the heads up... Hard for me to afford the out of state license, lodging, and gas down there as it is, hope this all works out

Luckily, it appears that an increased license cost is off the table as an option to fund the hatcheries.
It appears that the likely solution is for TVA to foot the bill, & pass along the additional cost to rate-payers, which probably won't go over well, understandably.

If anyone has a dog in the fight, please leave comments on the TVA website, and/or send an email to Lamar Alexander, who has really taken the side of the sportsmen on this issue in the past.  I believe someone has taken the time to type a form letter and posted it to the LRO site.

Thanks,
Cody

It looks to me that TVA funded $901,000 for 2014-2016... then the trouble begins... I have mixed feelings... if we could just get good enforcement of the law, the South Holston probably needs no more fish..

It needs less guides.

There is no wild brookies in the SoHo so I'll come.

I'm in.  I can bring a big turkey fish fryer so we can do this thing right.

I'll go real ghetto and not even buy a TN license.  That means I get to keep all I want because I'm a foreigner.

Dog gone it, just when I think you folks have nothing to offer, you come up with a fresh idea.  I can't make any SOHO fry, but if that one is a success, could you bring the operation to the Smith?
