I'm not seeing anything new on the closures. Has it been postponed, cancelled, or are the barriers going up?

As of now, the COE is moving forward. There is a barge above Cordell Hull dam that supposedly has the materials to start placing barriers this week. A rally has been planned by some politicians in Kentucky and Tennessee to garner more support for us fishermen. Here is the info on the Rally copied from Doug Markhams facebook page:


Please make plans to join us at the Freedom to Fish Rally at the Barkley Dam Pavilion.

Saturday, April 13, 2013, 11:00 AM CST
Speakers will be:
· Lyon County Judge-Executive Wade White

· Livingston County Judge-Executive Chris Lasher

· U. S. Senator Mitch McConnell

· U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander

· U. S. Senator Rand Paul

· U. S. Congressman Ed Whitfield

Background Information:
The United States Army Corps of Engineers has proposed restricted access areas below all the dams along the Cumberland River, including Barkley Dam. This would eliminate the freedom to fish in the prime areas for fish populations, the tailwaters of the dams.

The federal delegation has introduced the “Freedom to Fish Act,” which would prevent the Corps of Engineers from taking any action to establish a restricted area prohibiting public access to waters downstream of a dam, and for other purposes.

Many private organizations, state Departments of Fish and Wildlife, and the Governors of Tennessee and Kentucky have spoken out against the proposed restricted areas.

Vendor Information
