Since Doug Darr said TVA requires a permit to place "fish attractors", I emailed TVA and asked them for more information. Here is the reply and a link to the .doc file that was attached to the reply.
Thank you for your interest in matters involving TVA. We do have guidelines
for placing fish attractors in the reservoirs and permits are required.
Attached is a Word document containing the "text" of our guidelines. Our
hard copies also contain helpful diagrams to describe proper placement of
fish attractors at various location types. Please contact me at
256-571-4294 if you have questions or if you would like for me to mail you a
hard copy. Thanks.

] My name is Kerry Grissett and I operate a non-commercial website devoted

] writing you to inquire about a question one of the readers of my forum (
] North Alabama Fishing Forum - NAFF) asked recently about the rules
] concerning the placement of trees to attract fish in the Tennessee river
] lakes. This specific question was about Guntersville lake. I answered
] the message with what little I knew about the subject, but I wanted to get
] a more definitive answer. I have been told that permits are required, but
] have never seen any info about this.
] Can you point me to a web page that contains this information? I
] appreciate any help you can provide and would like to work even more
] closely with TVA in providing information to fishermen in the North
] Alabama area. I have written so TVA in the past and gotten very positive
] results. I appreciate all your help!
