There are numerous youth fishing events scheduled throughout Tennessee this spring. Interested persons can check the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s website at www.tnwildlife.org for scheduled events or contact their regional office.
The 2012 Free Fishing Day in Tennessee is Saturday, June 9, when anyone in the state may fish free without a license in Tennessee’s public waters. There are several events scheduled specifically for that day, but some events will be held during May and into the summer as well.
The list of current scheduled events is listed for each of the TWRA’s four regions in the For Anglers section of the website. Anglers and potential anglers should check the events list periodically since special events are frequently added.
