Free Fishing Day for Kids

by |

Fishing pole? Check. Bait? Check. A kid dying to give fishing a try? Check! Pack 'em up and head out for a free fishing day — no permit required!

Don’t have a fishing permit? No worries! Kids ages 18 and younger can enjoy the second annual free fishing day with the Riverdale FFA at Lane Agri-Park on Saturday, June 16 from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Catch & Clean!

At this nearly two-acre pond, there’s plenty of room for your family to come out and fish. The pond is stocked with large mouth bass and catfish that are at least a pound-and-a-half big! There are other kinds of fish in the pond, too. All you have to do is bring a pole and tackle or live bait to fish with. The ground around the pond may be soggy, so be sure to bring a chair. Members of the Riverdale FFA will show kids how to clean a fish to cook up for dinner, too.

Lane Agri-Park is located at 315 John R. Rice Blvd., Murfreesboro.
