History would suggest we do not manage our resources properly. Without stirring up the argument as to whether the Clinch has a reproducing population of trout, virtually all the tailwaters and streams do not until you get to the mountains of east TN. Seems to me those who like to fish for trout are going to put a lot of pressure on those wild streams if there are no other places to fish. I'm thinking the hatcheries pay for themselves, but may be wrong.
