Re: Delayed Harvest on the Little River
AA, you're right, access is limited as a whole and I agree with you about the land owner deal, too. TWRA does stock this water, though. They could easily yank this privilege. I view the towns around the smokies as a public entity seeing how tourism is the bread winner. If people moved there to get away from people then they moved to the wrong place. Something like this has the potential to help the town.
What I'm concerned about is the fact that these land owners deal with tubers all summer long. If a DH does happen then these people won't get much relief in the winter either. That may pose a problem. I'd like to know how many full time residents that own land on the river. I would think that most are second homes and business operations.
