Saturday will be Free Fishing Day
Tennessee’s annual Free Fishing Day is Saturday, June 7, when anyone may fish free without a license in the state’s public waters.
The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency provides the free day in hopes of increasing interest in fishing.
The day allows anyone the opportunity to try this great outdoor sport, especially children. In addition, children ages 15 and younger may fish without a license beginning on June 7 and continuing through June 13.
Free Fishing Day and Week apply to Tennessee’s public waters, TWRA owned and operated lakes, and state park facilities. Some privately owned pay lakes continue to charge during this special day and week.
Anglers may consult with lake operators if there are any questions about a particular facility.
