SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. – The Springfield Parks and Recreation Department is excited to host its 27th annual Youth Fishing Rodeo in partnership with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA).

Kids, ages 14 and under, are invited to fish from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 8, 2024, at J. Travis Price Park, 4155 Wilks Road. The TWRA will stock the pond with fish ahead of the event. Participants must bring fishing gear and bait. No artificial lures will be allowed.

Registration is required and is available online or in-person. In-person registration will be available the day of the event at 7:00 a.m. under the pavilion located next to the pond. Participants are encouraged to save time by pre-registering online at

At the conclusion of the event, prizes will be awarded thanks to generous donations from the community. Last year’s event was the highest attended Youth Fishing Rodeo in Middle Tennessee, with nearly 500 people visiting the park.

“This event is the perfect opportunity for parents to nurture a life-long love of fishing in their children,” said Springfield Parks and Recreation Director Terry Martin. “Last year’s event was an absolute success and we can’t wait to see the smiles on their faces again!”
