Saturday, June 7
Cumberland River Compact and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency presents the Sixth Annual Catfish Rodeo on Saturday, June 7, 2008 from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm on Centennial Park’s Lake Watauga.
This FREE family festival is all about our connecting children to our local waters. The Cumberland River Compact and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency partner each June to offer Middle Tennessee youth the opportunity to fish for free. No experience necessary! The day involves 2,000 pounds of catfish stocked in Lake Watauga, two flights of fishing, educational booths and activities that almost 500 children enjoyed with their parents. Our educational booths involve fishing, scavenger hunts, boating and water education activities that all ages can enjoy.
