Gatlinburg Trout

The Mountain Press has more on Gatlinburg, Tennessee's winter catch and release fishery. Gatlinburg is the only city in the state of Tennessee that stocks its own waters with trout. It is interesting to note that they transformed the old waste water treatment plant into a fish hatchery.
"From 800 to 1,000 fish are released every Thursday during the warmer months, and every other Thursday during the winter. "
