A long time ago (in the 80's) we would get the attention of TWRA by going through Trout Unlimited and the Tennessee Conservation League. Our TU Chapter in Nashville was a member. Every year we would have a call for Resolutions. Our TU Chapter would submit the resolutions to TCL. Then at the TCL annual meeting we would defend our resolutions. Ours were always fishing issues and the Chief of Fisheries would sit in on the meetings to hear our resolutions. I always saw the Governor of Tennessee at these meetings and all the TWRA folks from the top down. Eventually I served on the board of TCL (early 90's). TCL was a chapter of the National Wildlife Federation and had full time paid staff. In Kentucky the same group is called the League of Kentucky Sportsmen. Now the name of TCL has changed to the Tennessee Wildlife Federation. I would check with them and see how they work on fishing issues. TCL was formed in the 40's.
