About Tennessee River Fishing

    As the Tennessee River Fishing website grows in both content and membership, an added benefit will be the large number of like-minded people you'll be able to share information with, learn from, and get together to float a stream. By joining, you will almost never find yourself lacking for fishing buddies. Joining Tennessee  River Fishing is easy: all you have to do is register for the TRF Message Board (click button on your left) and Presto!!, you are a member!

    While getting more folks out on Tennessee's rivers is a nice goal, I think it is more important to get good people out there. By "good", I mean people who will respect limits, pick up litter (while not adding any), and even practice catch and release once they've got enough for dinner. While I have no control over the types of people that glean information from TRF, I believe that this website and the people on it can play a big role in influencing the way people treat our rivers and streams. While TRF is not an environmental organization, it won't hurt to have a large community of people in Tennessee that care about our rivers who can get together and act if a certain waterway is threatened.

    Now there are probably a certain number of you seasoned river rats out there who are wondering why in the world anyone would want to publicize Tennessee's river fishing. If more folks get out on the rivers, the fishing will necessarily get worse. I see your point, and undoubtedly there will be some bad apples who find this website and use it to catch and keep more fish than they need. I truly believe, however, that most people want to do right, and Tennessee River Fishing exists, in part, to teach and encourage people to do that.

   In short, if we can get more folks to enjoy and value Tennessee's rivers, then those people will be more likely to help protect those rivers if they are threatened. If that happens, we all win. Now get out there and catch some fish!
