Clarksville, TN – The City of Clarksville is excited about the return of the Shooting for Big Cats Fishing Tournament to this year’s Riverfest celebration.

Prizes are big. Of the total entry fees, 70 percent will be paid back in prizes for a minimum of the top three places. Also, a big fish pot will be collected at $10.00 per boat with 100 percent going to the angler with the tournament’s biggest fish. Door prizes will also be awarded.
