Yes there is a FREE tournament out of the First Creek ramp. It is being put on by the State to collect fish for a virus study. You have to bring all fish back to them so they can use them to study and hopefully find a cure for the LMV, bass virus. There is a money payout, I think like $250 for first place. It is like a regular tournament, except no draw prizes.
Sorry I can't confirm the date, as I only saw the flyer once a few weeks back. The tackle shop on the right (going west) just out of Rogersville (1/2 mile before Joe Wheeler park entrance) has all the details and I'm sure that the Athens tackle stores also have the info.
