Default New regs for the Caney?

Seems too good to be true. Am I hallucinating?

http://news.tennesseeanytime.org/node/2427

Caney Fork River
Rainbow and brook trout-14-20 inches PLR with 1 fish over 20 inches
Brown Trout-22 inches Minimum Length Limit (MLL) with 1 fish over,
(changed from 18-inches MLL with two over)
PLR - protected length range

I guess I can spend money in TN again, if they pass. I need a good duck hunt.....

Two other noteworthy items from the same press release:

*South Holston Reservoir- Remove the closed trout season (Dec. 1 to Feb. 2

*Also, on the Caney Fork, the TWRC Fisheries Committee will consider changing the daily creel limit from seven to five trout per day, per person

Interesting....

Write a letter to the TWRA saying you support the regs.

And you can vote here. Check out the wording, so much bias from a fishing guide.

Apparently down at the bottom they have an additional option for a 24 inch minimum on the browns! If you have never written a letter to the TWRA, now is the time. I have written them for both the clinch and the caney and I have no intention of fishing the clinch at this time. I just think the regs are a good idea for the rivers and the TN economy.

Gerry,

So this is actually on the reservoir, correct? Or are they suggesting removing the closed waters on the tailwater during that time?

As best as I can tell, they're talking reservoir only right now. No suggestions on the closed sections of the river yet.

Yee Ha! Great news!

Just wondering what you folks think about the 22" vs 24" proposal on browns. I'm C&R all the time so it wouldn't affect me so I'm guessing the proposal for a 24" minimum is to effectively make about all the browns C&R...right? Would that cause any problems with the rainbow/brookie populations?

Why is there a difference in the minimum length proposals between species? Is it because the rate of growth is different?

I'm going to do what I did when the regulation changes on the Clinch were considered. I'm going to send an e-mail to Frank Fiss at TWRA and our Region's Wildlife Commissioner, Mike Chase supporting the changes. They actually count those e-mails. All of you should e-mail the commissioner in your region. You can get their e-mail address from the TWRA website. Let them know you would like to speak at the commission meeting in October. Show up, stand up and tell them what you think. The fisheries biologists want these changes or they would not have been recommended. They need your support and it will happen if enough of us get involved. I'll see you there.

Byron

Byron is right we should all send emails. Here is a link to the TWRA contact page. Click on your region or on region 3 and send them a very nice email saying you are in favor of the new regs. I'd say go for the 24" minimum, I know a bunch of the guides were shooting for 26", as this is the TARP on browns but lets take what we can get. If they are considering 24 then lets hit them with that recommendation and maybe next year we can get it to 26.
Here's the link: http://www.state.tn.us/twra/contact.html
