Saturday is Free Fishing Day in Tennessee

TENNESSEE (WDEF) – The TWRA is reminding everyone that fishing is free on Saturday.

Tennessee is suspending their license requirements, and the fee that goes with it, for a Free Fishing Day.

They encourage everyone to take a kid out on the water, or maybe just dust off your old rod and reel yourself.

This also begins a week of free fishing for anyone 15 and younger through June 17.

The TWRA hopes the day and week will help build the sport in the state.

“A special thanks goes to Academy + Sports for its statewide sponsorship for Free Fishing Day. Academy + Sports provides $10,000 in gift cards and donates $20,000 to the Tennessee Wildlife Foundation for the day.  ”
