You could make that case, but I really do not know whether it would result in that or not.

What it would provide is a very good strain of fish that are from parents who were river raised and have the genes to thrive in the Clinch.

The biggest attraction is the cost along with the logisitics of transport.

They fill a void in the cold tailwaters that are too cold to support any species of native game fish.
The only coldwater species native to the southeast is the Appalachian strain brook trout. We all know brown trout are from Europe and rainbow trout are from the western states.

There are plenty of native fish which live in coldwater rivers. Hosts of minnows, darters, catfish, buffalo, log perch, etc etc.

There just aren't any coldwater "game" fish native to our tailwaters. Or that thrive in those types of environments.

waterwolf, my oversight but I was speaking of what is classed as gamefish. Many, if not most, species of fish in Tennessee can live in cold water. Look at what lives in real cold water in the northern states.

The fee for out of state guides should be no less than $5000 annually. The fee for in-state guides should be no less than $500 annually.

License checks should be mandatory before all guides and their clients can launch or wade in a river. No fish should be kept and a maximum catch rate should be established for guide trips.

Out of state licenses should be tripled.

And anyone who needs a guide to fish should be charged at least 4 times the normal fee for their license, 5 times if they are out of state.

Anyone wearing one of those vented shirts or a cowboy hat in or near any river should have their license suspended for no less than 10 years. A similiar fate should result from the usage of "tight lines" in speech or writing.

The latest graphite broomstick fly rod, especially if it is called "the one" or anything similarly ridiculous, should not be allowed on any river until next years piece of junk broomstick rod is released.

That's just how I feel about it.

Awesome. Nuff said on the majority of the above.

I agree on the vented shirts and cowboy hats however. Add to that the dweeb hats that have long bills and a flap down the back.

I'm sure Obama will appreciate your vote next election. The more regulations the better for the lazy socialist class....

mcfly, I am from out of state and fish Tenn yearly. I am the one in the vented shirt and the newer graphite fly rod. I have also have been known to go with a guide when fishing new unfamiliar waters for the first time. I have been known to wear floppy hats. I may have bumped into you once. Were you the guy in the hip boots with the rope stringer tied to his belt and the worm can?

Close, no worms, just jars of powerbait.

Btw, wth is wrong with a vented shirt? Maybe you like to sweat, but I prefer not.

Also I don't really know what this has to do with tailwater guide fees
