Youth ages 13 and under are invited to the 33rd annual Bob Watt Youth Fishing Rodeo on Saturday, May 13, at Anchor Park for a morning of fishing and competing for prizes in various categories. Registration begins on site at 9am with fishing from 9:30am – 11:00am. The first 150 kids will receive a free T-shirt.
The Town of Farragut is still 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 also encouraged to consider donating items to be used as prizes for participants.
The Town will provide bait (any type may be used) 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.
The Bob Watt Youth Fishing Rodeo is free and open to the public and sponsored by the Town of Farragut. Special thanks to event sponsors, the Benziger and Watt families, and to Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency for stocking the lake with fish. Anchor Park is located at 11730 Turkey Creek Road. The fishing rodeo will be held rain or shine; however, in the case of severe inclement weather, call 966-2420 for the status of the event.
