Possible Closure of Erwin Trout Hatchery

This hatchery delivers fish to 12 rivers in East Tennessee.  The goverment want's to close this hatchery and put in a chemical company a mile down the road.  I think stuff like this should stop!

You have to be kidding me!

Are the state TU chapters on this one...?

all local chapters are in on this one but it has to do with the Fed cutting money. this will be a massive blow to all the Delayed Harvest Fisheries in the SC, TN and NC. Losing this hatchery will mean a higher cost of eggs for the state agencies which will mean few fish for stocking. we'll all suffer if this budget issue doesn't get the attention it deserves.

I fished some delayed harvest streams when I was in NC for the annual meeting. I'd hate to see those beautiful streams impacted poorly. Keep fighting the good fight on this one!
