Fishing without a license offered Saturday in Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Fishing without a license in Tennessee will be allowed for one day during the state’s upcoming free fishing day.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency says anyone may fish for free without a license in Tennessee’s public waters on Saturday.

The agency said it offers the annual free fishing day in hopes of increasing interest in the recreational activity.

In an effort to attract more young people to fishing, children ages 15 and younger may fish without a license from Saturday through June 17.

The free fishing offer applies to Tennessee’s public waters, lakes operated by the wildlife agency, and state park facilities.
