TWRA needs to hear from sportsmen and families that would like a centralized,  easily accessible and local place to take their kids fishing. This location would be convenient to many people and it provides plenty of parking, access to restrooms, facilities and walking trails. 

The proposed stocking location(s) would be along the Cedar City Trail just downstream of the historical "Town Spring" on sinking creek where Lebanon, TN was founded in 1802. Or the Sellars Farm State Archaeological Site

The stocking and subsequent creation of a winter trout urban fishery would provide an economic boost to the local area and would help support the TWRA funding through fishing license/permit sales. Most importantly,  these location(s) would encourage outdoor activities for families and introduce new segments of the growing urbanized and close to city population to the fun and fulfilling sport of fishing. 

Currently the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency in conjunction with the USFWS operates and funds several Trout Hatcheries in Tennessee, these hatcheries stock multiple streams and tailwaters throughout the state with trout. In recent years this same program has expanded to provide numerous close to home trout fishing opportunities for anglers during the winter months. There are more than 40 locations for the 2019 winter trout stocking program and includes spots in all of TWRA’s four regions, with emphasis in Region I (West Tennessee) and Region II (Middle Tennessee).

We want to encourage TWRA to make Lebanon, TN- Wilson County the next location on that list!

Thank You for your Support- Wilson County Tennessee Sportsmen and thank you TWRA for the consideration of expanding your winter trout stocking program to this new location(s).
