Looks like TWRA is proposing some changes to the commercial fishing laws. See this link: http://www.state.tn.us/twra/news/commfish.html The catfish population in Watts Bar lake would surely benefit from a commercial fishing closure (look at Loudon just upstream) and commercial fishermen shouldn't be allowed to sell contaminated fish anyways. I also like the proposal to prohibit the export of large catfish. We need to keep these fish in our lakes. It is bad enough that commercial fishermen are now allowed to sell our big catfish but they shouldn't be allowed to sell them to out of state pay lakes.
