In celebration of National Fishing Month, each June, the Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) hosts a Free Fishing Rodeo for children 14 years of age and under.
Participants must bring all fishing gear and bait - (no artificial lures allowed). Don't forget your bucket or stringer. All participants are required to register, even if they arrive late. Prizes will be awarded mid-morning. At the conclusion of the event, the lake is open for free fishing the rest of the day.
TWRA stocks the pond with catfish, bream, sunfish, and other small fish for the event. Check our Facebook page for updates.
