Default 24 inch bow from ft loudon

saturday my dad fished a tornament on Fort Loudoun and a guy accidentally caught a 24 maybe 25 inch rainbow trout on the main lake down near the dam. I was amazed at this and wonder how many fish might migrate all the way to the lake and back to the rivers every year I'm sure this is a rarity but I'm also sure it is not the only fish to do so.

Although surprising its not outside of the realm of possibilities by any means. It could be from the Holston or upper end of tellico lake

I was surprised when one of my best friends caught a lake trout up on Loyston Sea area of Norris Lake last summer. Had to see the picture to validate it.

That's cool they stocked them there for years and then quit. I wonder if that was a survivor or if twra started stocking them again. I know Boone lake has quite a few in it, and there's a fair number of people fishing for them as well

At some point TWRA stocked kokanee in some East Tennessee lakes, but I've never heard much more about them. Anyone know where that stands?
