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.

Eighteen years ago, I moved to Knoxville after graduating college and fell in love with the city that has now truly become my home. Shortly after moving here, I married my college sweetheart, and when not working we set out to travel as much as we could. After working as a financial manager for six years, I welcomed my first son in 2010 and began a journey as a stay-at-home mom. Two years later we added another baby boy to make us a family of four. In June 2016, we welcomed our third son. I founded Knoxville Moms in November 2013 which began my career as a work-from-home mom, and it grew to the expansion of Chattanooga Moms in March 2016. We welcomed our first girl in November 2017 making us a family of six and adding a little pink in our house. In June 2021, I became the co-owner of the Atlanta Mom website, and in March 2022 I became the owner of the Nashville Moms parenting website. When I’m not chasing the kids or stepping on Legos, you can find me enjoying a cup of coffee, reading a good book, and dreaming about my toes in the sand. I enjoy meeting new people and enjoy providing local resources for families in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Atlanta, and Nashville.
