Free Kids’ Fishing Rodeo

Kids can cast a line and reel in a catch during this annual fishing tournament with prizes.

Calling all Sumner County kids who love fishing! Youth anglers ages 12 and younger can bait a hook and cast a line during the Crappie USA Classic’s Kids Fishing Rodeo. It takes place Saturday, April 15 on Old Hickory Lake at Flipper’s Bait and Tackle (200 Odoms Bend Road, Gallatin).

Sign-ups are from 8 – 9 a.m., and free fishing runs from 9 – 11 a.m. A parent must accompany each child. Kids just need to bring their own poles. Live bait is OK to use.

Top winners in each division will receive a rod-and-real combo and certificate. All participants are eligible to win one of six $1,000 scholarships — winners will be drawn at the main Crappie USA Classic in Paris, Tenn., in October.
