The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is sponsoring Free Fishing Day on Saturday, June 9 from 8 a.m. to noon at The Cove at Concord Park. The Cove is located at 11808 S. Northshore Drive.
TWRA will provide rods, bait, tackle, bottled water and prizes for the children. The Tennessee Valley Sportsman Club will provide free hotdogs and snacks.
The event is geared toward family and children and those who participate can fish without a license for the day.
“This is a nice event that’s great for the whole family,” said Clint Smith, a TWRA wildlife officer. “We’re really looking forward to seeing everyone and getting all the kids out in the outdoors. As always it’s a fun time for all and the best part is it’s free.”
The cove features mostly catfish but there are some blue gill and bass.
