Get those rods and reels ready kiddos. The Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency announced this week that its annual Free Fishing Day will take place on Saturday, June 6 this year.

On June 6, anyone (both Tennessee resident and non-residents) of any age can fish any Tennessee public waters free without a license. Free Fishing Week follows Free Fishing Day. From June 6 – 20, children ages 15 and under can fish for free in Tennessee’s public waters, agency owned and operated lakes, and Tennessee State Parks.

In southern, middle Tennessee, fishing is available at Tims Ford State Park in Franklin County, Old Stone Fort in Coffee County, and South Cumberland in Grundy County. Also be sure to check lake and water bodies levels before heading out. Many TVA dams are currently releasing water.
