Well from what I have seen, Bait Casters arent as apt to strap on the waders and tredge through the current but rather throw out some lawn chairs on the side of the river or on the weir, i just dont see them as that big of a problem.

I've always thought it would be nice to have a catch and release section on the Clinch. The biggest problem on the clinch is limited access points.

I was on the HI Saturday, and as I was leaving a spin fisherman approached me. We were in the big bend parking lot, and he asked that I verify the trophy trout zone regulations for him. I told him that from that island down (pointed it out to him) is trophy trout section, it was single hook artificial only, and that only 2 trout over 14" could be kept. He proceeded to take out a pack of treble hooks and throw them back into his car. He then loaded his vest up with Berkley powerbait and trudged off into the water. I thought this guy was going to head upstream and fish the shoals. However, he threw me for a loop when he immediately started heading downstream into the trophy section. When my buddy arrived at the vehicle he had also met up with this guy who told him he had already caught 20 and was going back for more action. I have never had a problem with spin fishermen, but when they have a blatant disregard for the regulations, that really bothers me.
