Fishing

Tennessee has an incredibly diverse fish population. There are over 300 species of fish, 280 of which are native to the state. There are thousands of lakes/ponds and miles of streams to fish all over the state; even with the ever-changing weather, there’s always somewhere to fish!

  2. Free Fishing Week follows Free Fishing Day! Children ages 15 and younger can fish for free in all of the aforementioned waterways!
