  • TWRA to present Sport Fishing changes for 2012

        The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) Fisheries Division has announced its proposed 2012 fishing regulation changes that will be presented to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission (TWRC) at its October meeting.
         The TWRA made its initial proposals for 2012 at the Aug. 24-25 meeting of the TWRC in Kingsport and discussed the possibility of a fishing guide license during this meeting as well.
         The following are TWRA’s proposed changes for 2012:

  • Burn permit information

        Due to extreme dry conditions, persons doing any outdoor burning, campfires or fireworks are urged to be very careful, and possibly put off burning until the area receives moisture. There have been several fires in the Knoxville area recently, 3 have been arson, 3 have been debris, 1 was suspected cigarette, 1 was caused by equipment use and 1 is under investigation. With current dry weather, fires are actually starting to burn down into the duff layer (organic material running up to 3 ft underground) making wildfires difficult to control.
