As far as policing the stock limits - I have the assumption that it is not economically feasible for TVA to do this at the moment with the budget constraints. I have had some serious debates with some of the TVA Corporate Management about this and other field issues.

One issue is; most trout fisherman - do abide the the rules and have their licenses. Anymore, there a very few violators and giving out citations costs TVA Money. The fines may be a couple hundred dollars, but the end up tying up resource officers time in court, etc that is more valuable. Also, it does create a burden on the court system of Anderson County that is struggling with a meth crisis.

In contrast; the summer boating season nets a significant amount of citation dollars and benefits the fund pool significantly. Not sure about next year...
