Alexander to speak against Corps fishing limits

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - Republican U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander is holding a press conference on Thursday to discuss concerns about an Army Corps of Engineers plan to limit fishing along the Cumberland River in Nashville.

Alexander will be joined by members of the community and representatives of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and the Tennessee Wildlife Federation.

The plan could stop fishing in tailwaters below dams along the river, even when water isn't spilling through the dams.

Alexander earlier this month announced that he is exploring federal legislation to halt the fishing limitations on the Cumberland.

The event is scheduled to be held at Old Hickory Dam, near an area that the Corps wants to restrict fishing in.
