Why do you think there are so many fat stripers (rockfish) down stream?

Because shad schools thrive in the warmer water, because an occasional trout does end up lower down on the Clinch. Forget downstream there are 40 pound stripers all the way to the weir dam on the Clinch.

I hope you are not suggesting that the trout are washed down stream to the waiting stripers?

Current is a funny thing, there is more slack water then you could possibly imagine with 2 generators running on the Clinch. Think of all the ledges which run across the river, they are mini current dams. Just something to think of if you were implying that we lose tons of fish to was out.

The only tons of fish we lose each year are to the stringers of baitslingers.

Agreed. no matter if they are in the protect slot or not! I saw a lot of fish(dead) on stringers last year that were in the slot

I don't know which is more frustrating, the dead fish on stringers that are in the slot, or the fact that I have NEVER seen anyone checked EVER.

Agreed, the enforcement on the river is pathetic. I guess TWRA would rather waste their money promoting a worthless elk project then protecting an invaluable cold water resource.

Being a Marine, I've seen my share of fat strippers!
Jacksonville, NC and Fort Knox KY come to mind.

I have commented on the TWRA Policing of the Rivers in a few other posts. It is all about economics and economies of scale.

Same with the "fat strippers". Sorry, I couldn't resist.
