Susan EspirituFarragut

It is time to sign up for the Bob Watt Youth Fishing Rodeo held on Saturday, May 11, 2024, with two sessions: 8-9 a.m. and 10-11 a.m. at Anchor Park, 11730 Turkey Creek Road.

Kids ages 12 and under are invited for a morning of fishing and competing for prizes.

This free event is open to the public, but registration is required. For information and registration, go here.

The town is accepting community donations for the event, including youth and adult spincast (push button) rod and reel combos in good working condition, line, hooks, bobbers and sinkers.

Farragut businesses are encouraged to donate items to be used as prizes for participants. Any individuals or businesses interested in donating can reach out to recreation and event manager Rachel Malone at 865-218-3378 or email.

The town of Farragut will provide limited worms for bait, and a limited number of fishing poles will be available for use during the event. Poles will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis; participants are encouraged to bring their own poles. Participants may also bring their own bait.

The fishing rodeo will be held rain or shine; however, in the case of severe inclement weather, check Farragut Parks & Recreation’s social media for updates.
