Most reservoirs around here hold fish that have precautionary warnings. I live within a few miles of a stream called Poplar Creek, it runs right through two nuclear bomb making facilities, but there are some trophy fish in there because everyone releases most everything they catch. Catfish and striped bass shouldn't be eaten from Watts Bar Lake, Melton Hill Lake, and Ft. Loudon Lake. However, I have access to some honey holes, a couple of ponds and a few upland streams with pristine water if I decide I want some fish to fry. I got a kick out of a sign at Ft. Loudon Dam. It says not to eat the catfish and sauger, and someone very neatly had printed with a Sharpie pen, "THE FISH HAVE AIDS. So, do you feel safe in eating the fish in your reservoir? I always release any largemouth, striper, smallmouth, and usually catfish caught out of a TVA lake. But I usually keep legal crappie, yellow perch, walleye or sauger. I'm almost 57 years old and have been eating fish all my life.
