For Immediate Release
Father’s Day Fishing Event in Victor Ashe Park for dads and their kids
Victor Ashe Park
2007 Father's Day Fishing Event

Fishing licenses are required for participants 13-years and up.

June 2, 2008 - Dads, their kids, and of course, moms will be able to catch a bonding experience at the Father’s Day Fishing Event, presented by Knoxville Parks and Recreation and Mast General Store, on Sunday, June 15, in Victor Ashe Park.

The event will run from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. and the park is located at 4901 Bradshaw Road.

Last year’s event saw over 100 children and parents with their poles in the water.

“We had a great turn out last year and everyone seemed to have a blast,” said Joe Walsh, Director of Parks and Recreation. “Events like this—bringing families and communities together—is what parks and recreation is all about.”

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is donating over 200 fish for the occasion. This includes channel catfish ranging from 2-8 lbs., large mouth bass, and bluegill. An albino catfish has also been placed in the pond and a prize will be given to the first person to catch it.

The Mast General Store is partnering with the City’s Parks and Recreation Department to offer the Father’s Day Fishing Event and is donating prizes to be given away, including a grand prize for the largest fish caught by a father/child team.

Participants should bring their own bait, tackle, fishing poles, and blankets. Refreshments, including fish sandwiches, will be available for purchase at the event.

No pre-registration is necessary. Participants can register for door prizes on the day of the event.
