2018-19 TWRA’s Winter Trout Stocking Resumes

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s winter trout stocking program has resumed as the new year begins and will continue at selected locations through the middle portion of March. The 2018-19 program began in December.  

 

The program provides numerous close to home trout fishing opportunities for anglers during the winter months.

These fisheries also provide a great opportunity to introduce children or first-time anglers to fishing. 

 

The trout will average about 10 inches in length. The daily creel limit is seven, but there is no size limit. Anglers are reminded that a trout license is needed in addition to the fishing license.

 

Please note that the dates and locations are subject to change. Updates can be found on TWRA’s website at  www.tnwildlife.org.

The Wheel Tax Wouldn't Be A Sacrifice And Supports Our Teachers - And Response (7)

I appreciate our underpaid teachers here in Tennessee so much. We as a whole have a moral obligation to make sure we contribute to their pay. A wheel tax on our cars is a minimal expense to most of us. Sixty dollars is not enough for us to complain. We shouldn't even bat an eye at that if it contributes to the hard working teachers who sacrifice daily for our children. We ... (click for more)
