Holston Army Ammunition Plant (HSAAP)

Public Fishing Program

In the past HSAAP's fishing events were scheduled for late June and July to avoid disturbing a pair of bald eagles nesting near two of the fishing compartments. This gave the young eagles time to leave the nest before fishermen were in the area near the nest.  However, the eagle's nest was destroyed in a windstorm last year and the eagles never returned to that location to nest this year. Therefore, the fishing events were moved up to occur in mid-May and June which is a more productive time of the year to fish.  Rescheduling of these events required that the application deadline was moved up approximately one month ahead of when it normally would occur. As a result, the deadline for the 2019 events has passed and the drawing has already been completed for this year. The installation hopes to hold these events in May and June in the future which would entail that applications should be available by the first week of April.
