Statewide Reservoirs and Tributary Rivers according to new TWRA regulations from their web site is as follows. All Reservoirs, except Kentucky, Dale Hollow and Douglas Reservoirs= 18inch mimimum length limit on Smallmouth Bass. Existing creels will not change. On Boone, South Holstonand Watauga Reservoirs the minimum length limiton Smallmouth Bass will be 16 inches, increasing to 18 inches in 2009.. Now according to that all Lakes and Rivers not listed by name will automatically be 18 inches because it does say statewide. That means Cordell Hull Centerhill, Loudon/Telico, Chickamauga, Watts Bar, Nickajack, Pickwick, Tims Fords, Woods Reservoir, Normandy, Cherokee, Norris, Cheatham, Percy Priest, Barkley and all other that I have missed mentioning and all Rivers feeding into and out of these lakes are included in the size limits.
