What’s Up: State Of Tennessee Trout

Jim Habera


The condition of trout in East Tennessee as revealed by this winter’s electrostudies will be discussed on Thursday, April 12, by biologist Jim Habera at a free, public 7 p.m. meeting of the Clinch River Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

Due to conflict with a special event at our usual meeting place, this meeting will be in the fellowship hall at Norris First Baptist Church, 149 W. Norris Road, Norris—kittycorner across the intersection from St. Francis Episcopal Church. The Baptist church fellowship hall is a separate building behind the church; please enter from the lower parking lot.

Habera has worked since 1998 for Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency; his primary responsibility is Tennessee’s wild trout resources. He graduated from Sullivan East High School in 1980 and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in wildlife and fisheries science from the University of Tennessee.

In addition to Habera’s program, anyone interested in learning more about Clinch River Chapter activities can attend the Brown Bag Board Meeting starting at 5:30—just pack a sandwich and join us in the parish hall.
