View Full Version : TWRA Stocking Concern

I was just visiting the TWRA website and I noticed that on their 2011 stocking schedule they did not have the Clinch or the Holston on it.
Here is a link to the site I was looking at-


Hopefully someone can find it and I can take a deep breath. These are my 2 favorite locals and the fact that both are only 30 minutes from my house helps too.

I think you are looking at one of two schedules. This one is just the creeks and non-tailwaters. I assume the tailwater schedule is still the one published in the fishing guide. Holston is stocked November through April and Clinch March through September. The new 2011 fishing guide is due out in paper form in March, maybe sooner online.

And btw, I think they stocked the Holston on Tuesday, 1/18. Last weekend was the best fishing I have ever had below the dam.

RichardS is correct. What you were looking at is the stocking schedule for streams & rivers. Here is the page specifically dealing with the tailwaters: http://www.state.tn.us/twra/fish/StreamRiver/tailtrout/tailtrout.html.

Also, just to clarify one point in case anyone other than myself wasn't reading RichardS's post carefully, the Holston (below Cherokee Dam) is stocked November through April. The South Holston up near Bristol is stocked March through September, same as the Clinch.
