KINGSPORT — Holston Army Ammunition Plant is offering the general public the opportunity to fish the restricted section of the Holston River within the installation’s boundaries again this year.

HSAAP is accepting applications for three one-day fishing events scheduled for this summer: June 25, June 26 and July 9.

Individuals interested in fishing on HSAAP must submit an application,  and those chosen will be selected by a random drawing.

HSAAP’s public fishing program was approved by the HSAAP commander under a strict set of guidelines designed to ensure that installation safety and security standards are maintained while each fishing event is underway.

Applications for the events can be found online at holstonwildlife.webs.com under the Fishing Information tab.

Applications also may be requested via mail by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to: Holston Army Ammunition Plant, Attn: Fishing Information, 4509 West Stone Drive, Kingsport TN 37660.

Completed applications must be received by June 6, 2016, to be considered in the drawing for this year’s events.

 For additional information on the events, contact Bruce Cole, HSAAP natural resources manager, at (423) 578-6276.
