New Lake Youth Fishing Event
New Lake Youth Fishing Event will be held June 8, 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. This event is for ages 0-15 and their accompanying families and/or other guardians. TWRA will stock catfish into New Lake the week of the event and several fish will be tagged which can be redeemed for prizes. A lunch and drinks will be provided by Chad Fox Insurance and Sun Drop. There will be also prize drawings for a variety of fishing equipment and Rock Creek Market in Verona is donating bait worms for use while supplies last. You will need to bring your own poles, tackle, bait and other lures that you wish to use.
June 8 is a free fishing day across the state of Tennessee, so a state fishing license is not required, but all vessels under power by an electric motor must be properly registered. Gas motors are not allowed on New Lake. All youth ages 12 an under in a vessel must be wearing a proper Personal Flotation Device and any other people must have a PFD accessible onboard. All other species caught other than catfish, must adhere to lake regulations on size and creel.
