Tailwater Guide License Update
I was at the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission (TWRC) meeting today in Nashville and thought some of you might like an update on the proposal for a Tennessee Tailwater guide license.
Thanks to a great deal of feed back to the commissioners, the idea of a guide license that would only apply to those limited tailwaters, basically targeting trout guides, has been shelved. At least for the time being. The TWRA was asked to look into other options such a "fishing guide license" that would apply to all fishing guides. My gut feeling is that with all the other items on their plate at the moment, and the opposition to the tailwater guide license, it will be a while before this sees light again.
Thanks to those that shared their feedback with me pro and con on the issue....
