TWRA First Fish Award

First Fish Award Example Image

Congratulations, Your First Fish!

The First Fish Award is designed to commemorate that special moment in everybody's life-the landing of their first fish. The award recognizes this special moment with a frameable certificate identifying the angler, the fish caught, and other details of that moment. Size of the fish and age of the angler have no bearing, only that the fish is their first, and that it was caught in Tennessee.

How to Get Your First Fish Award?

There are two ways an angler can receive their first fish award. There is no charge for using either method.

Online: This method uses a pdf file which can be used to fill out and print a first fish award at home.

By Mail: If you would like to receive a first fish award by mail then simply fill out the online .pdf form provided here and return it to the TWRA Fisheries Management Division at the address on the form (instructions included). This award will be filled-out, printed, signed by the Chief of Fisheries, and mailed to the angler.
