Col DeLapp with the core of engineers has now officially closed all the tailwaters to boats and fishermen on the Cumberland River system. If this doesn't bother you, it should. Here is a link to outline the restrictions.

This is a far bigger blow than fishermen think. It would set a serious precedent.

What happened to the open meeting he promised Lamar Alexander? It is not a done deal yet. At least that is my understanding. There is supposed to be an open meeting before it becomes fact. Note-they are finalizing plans, not they have implemented it.

BW, according to Doug Markham the meeting is supposed to take place sometime in January and the public will be notified when plans for the meeting are finalized. Don't hold your breath. Doug seems to be doing all he can to protect our rights but in the end, he is just a fisherman like the rest of us.

I live in Carthage. Fish below the cordell Hull dam all the time best fishing on the cumberland. This is going to have a huge impact on more than just us fisherman. Id say atleast 75% of fisherman come to carthage to fish here. can we say $$$$$$ lost again? This is the dumbest thing the corp has done. They are gonna do what they want either way. Guess no bait either since u havent been able to access the wall since 2010.

Sad news. Just bought a new fishing boat with high hopes of getting below the dams. THis really ticks me off. More government. Welcome to america. 14 deaths in 43 years below dams? Really? What a joke.

Check out Doug markham Facebook page. Someone has now also restricted the (or trying to) the heartland area boat ramp on stones river. Getting plum stupid. That ramp is plenty big for big boats and no reason for it!

This ain't going to turn over well with fishermen

I have done a little fishing below the dams and am not about to give it up easily, and sure there are hundreds of other doe hard fishermen who practically live below the dams when fishing is good

"safety" since 2009, three fatalities, one serious injury and 10 near misses/rescues have occurred in hazardous waters immediately downstream of dams on the Cumberland River and its adjoining tributaries. 14 people have died in these areas since 1970.

While one death is too many, of the 14 deaths, I wonder how many were wearing life vests and going by the rules set forth as far as distance from the dam etc.

Very sad and scary stuff.

If fishermen had any stones, they would organize protest days and put 100 boats on the river. Violate the new safety zones, catch a bunch of fish and dump them in DeLapp's yard.

This government has gotten out of control.

I was thinking along the same lines. If a whole lot of fishermen would go fish from their boats below the dams at the same time, I'd be one of them for sure.

We need to stop and think of what is the BEST way to get our point across. I wouldn't be looking to TWRA for support considering they work hand in hand with the corp on WMA land. What are our options? Just writing to Alexander? Some sort of petition? A protest? What you guys think?

I personally don't see a boat protest crossing the buoy-line being very effective, unless your ultimate goal is to be arrested.

I agree. Just ask the nun how well their protest at Oak Ridge went when they broke the law. You may have to wait 30 more years for them to get out of jail though.

Using a pen and paper and writing an intelligent letter to your congressmen will get alot more accomplished than some redneck boat rodeo.

Lamar Alexander has spoken out. Believe it or not, TWRA has spoken out as well. TWRA probably anticipates less revenue from license sales therefore they decided to speak up.

I'm willing to beat that the family of one drowning victim sued the dog crap out of the Corps. This whole shenanigan by the Corps is only to appease the lawyers. That's what drives a lot of decisions unfortunately.

Regardless....

Our government is no longer afraid of the people. As they should be.

I am not advocating breaking the law or acting stupid.

Citizens need to stand up and be heard. An example needs to be made for government bureaucrats to be aware of.

Perhaps if 100 fishermen trailer their boats to the CORPS. headquarters and clog up the parking lot so nobody can leave, then go inside and politely ask for a meeting with Mr.DeLapp AND HIS BOSS.....
Nobody do anything stupid....this isn't a Union rally or anything.
Just a bunch of VERY concerned citizens making a point that we don't like having our freedoms messed with.

Our government knows most people are too busy trying to get by after having half their income bled by taxes. Most of us don't have the time or energy to hold them to account. After all, the next election is a couple years away..... So they poop on us and laugh about it, knowing they will get away with it.

From my understanding @ Center hill dam they will stretch chains and buoys across where the current "life jackets required beyond this point" signs are. TWRA has said they will not enforce this so that leaves it up to the US government to give me a ticket. Even further- my pops who is an old school 3 tour Vietnam vet who hates everyone and everything told me it is illegal for an American soldier to raise arms against an American citizen

I would like to believe that is true but under the current administration I wouldn't put it past some Army guy pointing a rifle at me cuz of a fishing hole, and thats very sad--

almost down to mansker creek.... screw that!

what are we gonna do for skipjack? try to find a spot to wet a line among everyone else who is trying to get them at the steam plant? Or just happen on a random school of them somewhere in the river?

edit - looks like you could still access below the lock?

still that cuts out a huge area of the best skipjack, rockfish, catfishing....

I disagree, I'd say treat other fishermen like you'd want them to treat you...... Unless they are already being a jerk ;\)

Why would you want to irritate a fellow fisherman just because its "your river too?"

If you are on plane heading down the river in a jet and it's shallow, you cannot slow down. You will knock the bottom out of your boat.

It's your river too. I'd rather tick somebody off than beat the crap out of the bottom of my boat.
I disagree, I'd say treat other fishermen like you'd want them to treat you...... Unless they are already being a jerk ;\)
Why would you want to irritate a fellow fisherman just because its "your river too?"
If you are on plane heading down the river in a jet and it's shallow, you cannot slow down. You will knock the bottom out of your boat.
then don't run shallow rivers on the weekends....

That's a good idea. Maybe I'll sell my boat and buy a pair of waders.

Is this considered shallow?

i treat them like i want to be treated. would never consider blasting by a fellow fisherman like that without a warning, explaining why i have to run wide open by them. just common courtesy in my book

I wouldn't purposely do that to make someone mad. If it's deep enough to drift by them or idle by, I do. I've never had to "buzz" anyone on the river. The only place that would be an issue for me is on the little pigeon. I do not go up it on the weekends though, ever.

good to hear, sorry I get a bit touchy after one time last fall I stopped by the duck river to do a little bank fishing and had a bass boat chug by me on half plane and mudded up the water everywhere along the bank. The duck is plenty big for boats but also plenty small and best suited for a jet boat which is why I want to eventually get a jet. Late this summer right before archery season I took my 14 ft jon with the 5 horse briggs upstream about 15 miles and had to get out of the boat maybe a dozen times to drag my boat through the shoals because the river was low. So I understand the need for a good fast boat but I got a bit annoyed that one day because it was a saturday and lots of boat traffic stirred up the whole river.

Guys, you can make a difference if you could stay focused for more than a few posts. Half way through this thing we are already off topic selling jet boats and complaining about fishing trips ruined. Big news the CORPS is about to ruin everyones fishing trips. The protest below dams is great, but it needs to be coordinated and before the regs take effect. Contact all media and get as many boats as possible below all affected dams. Make signs calling out, not only politicians but boat and fishing equpiment manufacturers. Tell them if they don't support you, then you won't buy their products. Contact all your state and U.S. representatives and express your concerns and where your vote will go. Protest on March 1, 2013 and vow not to buy a fishing license. There are alot of fishermen in this and surrounding states and if we just come together and stay focused we can't be stopped from fishing anywhere.

I like it. Except I buy my sportsmans license every year however that's minor. I would gladly participate in such protests.

I dont river fish much,but dont understand all the fussing about boats in a river,going any speed.Boat goes by,river returns to normal in short order,AND,fish are used to boats on most rivers.They dont swim up on the bank and walk away.

Not for people acting like jerks,but boating is part of river fishing,isnt it?

This is bad, but you guys are reading the maps wrong. The access isn't restricted all the way to the yellow Tailrace" boundary. It's only closed inside the orange bouy line and cross- hatched area. Only 800 feet at OH, not 3000.

Still, it's the best 800 feet.

BTW I stopped at OH today and there's a fence blocking the stairs and sidewalk leading to the dam from the first parking area. How long has that been there? The article said only boat traffic is being stopped, not bank fishing.
