Re: Tennessee Trout Mgmt Plan
The "trophy section" during the 90's was on that section, but got overturned when LUCRO (land users clinch river something or other) threatened to sue and got politicians involved. I am sure that left a boil on TWRA's rump that has not gone away yet, therefore, the upper section to me makes sense. There are not as many quys that run boats at flow as there are waders.
Personally, I think TVA is crazy for allowing any boat traffic in that area during generation. If your motor stalls then you face the most dangerous of all falls in any river which is a man-made fall that has no breaks in it. Well documented by white water rescue resources.
I just want to ask this to TWRA......One mile out of 13, is that too much to ask to protect?
I am a great admirer of spectator sports, especially on television; it keeps the riffraff off the trout streams.
