The Mountain Empire Chapter of Trout Unlimited (METU) and the Town of Marion are sponsoring "Fish On!", a special family fishing event set for Heritage Day, Saturday, April 1st, 2017 from 8:30 AM until 1:00 PM at Riverbend Park (near Holston Hills Community Golf Course) in Marion, Virginia.
The traditional start of fishing season, Heritage Day is a great opportunity for fishing enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy the sport, to learn more about the craft, and how they can help preserve fishing opportunities for future generations, all in a beautiful setting along the Holston River.
The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) will do a special stocking for Heritage Day on the middle fork of the Holston River, just above the golf course. Participants will be able to fish from Riverbend Park to the Pump House at the Community Golf Course. There will not be a charge to fish.
Other activities include:
• Prizes for various categories
• Information on how you can join Trout Unlimited
Participants can enjoy a streamside lunch at Riverbend Park (for a fee).
Everyone is invited to attend! Participants 16 years and older will require a Virginia fishing license and a trout license. All other Virginia fishing regulations will apply.
