Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area hosted the 35th Annual Special Populations Fishing Tournament on Honker Lake, Saturday, June 2.

Over 75 participants, caregivers, and volunteers attended this free fishing tournament.

“Thanks to everyone who helped make this day such a success,” said Gary Hawkins, LBL’s Recreation Program Manager. “The weather was beautiful, fishing was tough, but everyone had a great time. I think the volunteers and sponsors enjoyed themselves as much as the participants!”
