August Meeting

President’s Notes  

Ernie Frey


Well it is August.  Fishing is good as always but catching is tough.  To catch, you have to fish early or late in the day and up high where the water is cooler.  Remember autumn is just a few weeks away so time may be better spent preparing for the fall season by tying flies or cleaning equipment.  The Little River Chapter has received an award from the Tennessee River Basin Network for our water quality sampling efforts.  I would like to thank Matt Culp of the Park Service for nominating the Chapter for the award; the founding members for developing the Chapter’s charter which is to assist the Fisheries Department of the Park and Charlie Chmieleski for all those years of coordinating the volunteer efforts.  Our August meeting will be on Tuesday the 28 th at Barley’s in Maryville. As usual, social hour will start 6pm, the business meeting at 7pm.  Jon Ellis, the manager of the Tellico Trout Hatchery has agreed to be the speaker at the August meeting.  He will be discussing the Tellico fishery both wild and stocked streams.  Joe Hatton will be leading the August meeting.
