They are finding that water levels are low in rivers and water temperatures too high.

Here is the impact so far:

Hiwassee River (Polk Co.) : Delayed harvest stocking because water temp above 70 degrees.

Tellico River (Monroe Co.): Fewer fish will be restocked October 1st because of law water levels.

Little River (Blount Co.): Trout stocking postponed

Little Pigeon River (Sevier Co.): Delayed harvest stocking because water temp above 70 degrees in the west prong of the river.
