Partnership brings 300,000 Florida bass to Kentucky Lake


From WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News

Henry County and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency partnered to place 300,000 Florida bass fingerlings in the Paris Landing State Park.

“The purpose of this is to help the quality of the fishery. It will help the fishery to become stronger, have better bass. They will interbreed with the northern strain bass that we have and make a heartier species in the area,” said Drew Williams, with the Henry County Tourism Authority.

Henry County contributed $50,000 and Benton County contributed $25,000 for the fish.

The 2020 Fair was an abbreviated event, with minimal activities and no carnival due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizers noted that animals are being raised, crafts are being made, photos are being taken, canning will be started soon; all in preparation for the Fair and “We can’t wait.”

Henry County UT Extension Director Michele Atkins said the Henry County 4-H Country Ham program is ongoing and the Ham Weigh-in was held recently, with sponsorship from Clifty Farms. She noted the Steer Weigh-in also was held in April. She said the county’s 4-H kids are ready and excited for the fair.
