King Kat Fishing Tournament presented by Bass Pro and Cabela’s will make a stop in Clarksville on Saturday, April 9, 2022. Liberty Park will host fishermen looking to make waves on their way to the Cabela’s King Kat Classic in Decatur, Ala. The qualifier will start at 6:30 AM with the final weigh-in at 4:00 PM.
One of the focal points of this day will be the Kids’ Fishing Rodeo taking place at the Liberty Park Fishing Pond starting at 9:00 AM. This aspect of the event is open to all children ages 12 and under. Participating kids will be entered into a drawing for a $1,000 scholarship. Six winners will be drawn at a future Crappie USA Classic. Any child looking to participate must be accompanied by an adult. There is no fee to enter.
“We have a beautiful park, situated perfectly on the banks of the Cumberland River. I think it is only fitting that Clarksville is hosting a tournament of this caliber,” said Visit Clarksville Chairman Matt Cunningham. “In addition to the main event, offering an opportunity for local kids to experience the outdoors and a love for fishing is truly a great opportunity for our city,” Cunningham added.
