Well yeah, that's what we're talking about - more regulations. Or, at least, a little tightening of the existing ones.

We can make a decision: do we want more & bigger trout, or are we content with stocker rainbows fresh off the truck and browns up to 17"? Can't have the big fish AND no regs with the pressure the Caney sees now.

"Timeless" apparently remembers when the crowds were restricted to the top 6 miles, but with the ramp at the ballfields getting more traffic nowadays, that's not the case anymore.

I remember when Caney fishermen didn't post maps or pictures or tell people they've scouted a few spots out so it's ok to tell everyone on the internet to go fish them out so a select few fishermen can tailor a fishery to their expectations.

Uhhhh does anyone happen to remember me posting last summer that this would be a down year for the big trout?

I hate it when I am right.

I recall your saying that you couldn't kill enough fish to see the difference, that the Caney had enough big fish that you would never be able to dent the fishery. Correct me if I'm wrong. Or are you just saying we're on a downward side of the cyclical trend we always talk about?

Watch - this thread will be 10 pages. Life was getting boring anyway. \:\)

Ballfields? No one told me about any ballfields! You mean I don't have to carry my canoe from the I40 Rest stop?

I haven't heard much this winter from the jerkbaiters. Surely Tubby Tubs didn't take all y'all with him down to Gatorland? I'd like to hear how the jerkers and baiters did this winter. How 'bout it Shorefisherman, Bigluresonly, etc.?

Yes, I'd prefer a strictly catch and release fishery, but just because I'm lovable \:D , here is the proposal I will be pushing for.

Statewide regs. is what we need for all TN tailwater fisheries.
5 rainbows and/or brookies outside the slot of 13-20 inches. 1 brown only, must be 26 inches or better.
