Jim,
My understanding of the TWRA's stance is that the trout do spawn and reproduce on the Clinch. However; the depletion rate is more than the reproduction rate due to various factors. If it were not stocked; it would be a finicky river to fish.

Here is a video I shot Monday. It illustrates the three zones of the water column if you watch closely. Also; you will notice many of the females swollen with eggs.
