2017 Free Fishing Day this Saturday

Posted: Updated:

If you like to fish, but haven't yet taken the plunge for a Tennessee fishing license, you get a break Saturday.

The 2017 Free Fishing Day is Saturday, June 10 when anyone may fish free without a license in Tennessee’s public waters.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency provides the annual free day in hopes of increasing interest in fishing. 

The day allows everyone the opportunity to try the sport, especially children.

Children ages 15 and younger may fish without a license beginning on Free Fishing Day through the following Friday (June 16).

The TWRA is among several organizations planning special fishing events, primarily for youngsters. The TWRA annually stocks several thousand pounds of fish for various events.

Free Fishing Day and Week apply to Tennessee’s public waters, TWRA owned and operated lakes, and state park facilities. 

Some privately owned pay lakes and ponds continue to charge during this special day and week. Anglers will need to consult with those operators if there are any questions about a particular facility.
