Speaking of wanting more browns on the Clinch, I came across 3 guys and one woman fishing just above the weir about a week ago who were bait fishing. I asked them if they were having any luck and they said they were doing OK and were trying to catch small browns to use for bait to catch rockfish and stripes. I don't know if I'm off base or not, but it ticked me off and I asked him why just browns and he said that all the flyfishermen he knew wanted the browns out the river.As far as I 'm concerned why allow any trout be caught to be used as bait. As far as I know, there's not a minimum length regulation.....but.......
