Knoxville (WVLT) -- On Saturday folks flocked to Tennessee's public rivers and lakes for a day of free fishing
The reason behind the migration to the waters banks was that the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency exempted everybody including non-residents from the states licensing and permit requirements.
One man brought out his kids not only for the free day at the lake, but for the great bonding experience.
"It was great it was just a great family day," said Steve Green who took his sons out to Cove Lake in Knox County. "I think everybody should do it once and a while."
Several fishing spots also offered free events including Dillard Place in Greene County, the Alcoa Duck Pond, and Concord Park, home to Cove Lake.
