Fairview Youth Fishing Rodeo Set for June 10 at Veteran’s Memorial Park
Fairview, TN—- Fairview Parks Department and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) is inviting kids ages 16 and under to take part in one of the world’s oldest and most-loved pastimes – fishing!
This year’s Youth Fishing Rodeo will be held once again at Veteran’s Memorial Park at Evergreen Lake off of Hwy 96 in Fairview. It is located on Black Pine Road across the street form Leatherwood Inc.
The Rodeo will be June 10th from 7 a.m. until 10 a.m. as part of the statewide Free Fishing Day. Registration will begin at 6:30 a.m. with a drawing for prizes at 10 a.m. Prizes to be given away have been donated by TWRA and include fishing equipment such as tackle boxes, and fishing poles.
In addition to having a chance to catch catfish and win prizes, participants will be treated to free hot dogs and bottled water, courtesy of Publix in Fairview.
On June 10th, kids 16 and under will have the first shot at catching hundreds of pounds of catfish that TWRA will release into the lake at Veterans Memorial Park. Participants should bring one fishing pole per child participating in the Fishing Rodeo. Please leave extra rods in the car. Once the drawing for prizes is finished at 10am, the stocked area will be opened to everyone and extra rods are welcome.
Free Fishing Day events have been held across Tennessee since the early 1990s and the event in Fairview continues to grow every year.
Free Fishing Day is a statewide and national celebration that offers an opportunity for anyone to fish without possessing a fishing license. Dozens of special events are held across the state with most designed to attract kids to the outdoors, but with their parents’ participation. However, the day is also meant to allow anyone to fish for free with the intent of introducing more people to fishing, or to rekindling an old passion for the outdoors.
All public waters will be open to fishing without a license requirement on June 10th, according to the TWRA.
