Hunting and Fishing Permits
An updated Tennessee Fishing License is required to fish in the Obed. Hunting is permitted in certain locations at the Obed Wild and Scenic River. Please see a park ranger or stop in at the Obed Visitor Center to get information on the permissible hunting locations within the park. Hunting is also permitted within the boundaries of the adjacent Catoosa Wildlife Management Area during scheduled hunting seasons.
If you purchase your hog hunting permit online, please print out your receipt or write down your confirmation number. This is what you will need to have if you are checked by a ranger. Permits are not being mailed out.
For further information, please contact the park at 423-346-6294.
