The U.S. Senate has passed a bill that includes legislation aimed at halting controversial fishing restrictions near Cumberland River Dams. Sen. Lamar Alexander co-sponsored a measure to halt the restrictions passed as part of the Water Resources Development Act. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has begun implementing a ban on fishing from boats both above and below Cumberland River watershed dams, including Center Hill Dam. The Corps says the ban is for the safety of boaters, but fishermen have been vocal in their opposition to losing access to what they say are prime fishing spots. The legislation would delegate enforcement of fishing restrictions to state wildlife agencies, taking it out of the hands of the Corps.
