Free fishing on Saturday
Tennessee's 2020 Free Fishing Day will go on as scheduled this Saturday, 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 anyone, especially children to celebrate fishing as a wholesome and healthy recreational option. In addition, children ages 15 and younger may fish without a license beginning on Free Fishing Day through the following Friday, June 12. This year's Free Fishing Day will be held under unusual circumstances. Due to the coronavirus pandemic many events have been cancelled, including all TWRA-hosted events. Despite having the organized events cancelled, TWRA will still stock locations with catfish before Saturday and encourages families to go fishing at a safe distance. The day and week are annual events in Tennessee and apply to Tennessee's public waters, TWRA owned and operated lakes, and state park facilities.
