Re: Delayed Harvest on the Little River
Thanks to everyone for bringing up this topic. Sorry I haven't been on the message board. I've missed it. We're slammed here at the store. I was in a meeting with TWRA about a year ago concerning a delayed harvest program like the one in Gatlinburg. There is a group of local people who think this is a good idea. There are others who don't. TWRA is all for it if there is a positive consensus among the landowners on the river. The city of Townsend is one one side of the river and Blount County is on the other. We have a new member today named Visit Townsend. His name is Herb Handley and he posted in the new member section. He does an excellent job as EVP of the Smoky Mountain Convention and Visitors Bureau. He gave his phone number in his post. His office is at the Townsend Visitors Center. I think he would like to hear from you about this subject. In fact I talked to him today about it. He is a good friend and also a fly fisherman.
