Default Florida Strain bass introduced to new TN. waters

The proposal is to continue current stocking at Chickamauga Reservoir, Lake Graham, Gibson County Lake, Brown’s Creek Lake, and Shellcracker Lake. The new waters to be stocked are Nickajack Lake, Watts Bar Lake, Fort Loudoun Lake, the middle portion of Kentucky Lake, and TWRA’s Herb Parsons Lake in Fayette County.

New waters do not need to be stocked. Cost benefit is not there. Besides they are in the marginal areas of success (even if cost to raise were lower success may not be attainable). Besides conservation of native genetic stock should be a priority, rather than mixing in a non-native strain.

Chickamauga turn around has been more about springtime water levels, than FL strain.

If all the lakes mentioned had the weed growth that the Flordia lakes it would be better. Not that its a bad ideal anyway.
