Annual Fishing Rodeo

Posted on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at 11:07 am

Join South Cumberland State Park at Tracy Lakes for a day of food, fun, and fish at the annual Fishing Rodeo on Saturday, June 6, marking Tennessee’s annual Free Fishing Day, a day where anyone can fish without a license. South Cumberland would like to help those in our community by hosting the rodeo to celebrate family in the outdoors.

The men and women at Myers Hill have worked hard to make this fishing rodeo possible. Be sure to thank them when visiting the park on that day. South Cumberland and Myers Hill have also worked with other local business to raise donations and prizes.

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will have a presence at the event as they were instrumental in helping with funding and providing fish for the rodeo.

Head over to Tracy Lakes on Saturday, to spend the day outdoors with family and community. The gates will open at 7 a.m. and in order for children to qualify for door prizes they must register at the main parking lot by the bathrooms. At 10 a.m., South Cumberland will be drawing for prizes and Myers Hill Church will begin making lunch for all participants.
