We do Fish Feedings every Tuesday and Saturday with one of our very own outfitters presenting interesting facts. We also have a trout pond located right next to the aquarium that children get to help feed during our Fish Feedings.

This location will be no different, and the first big conservation push will happen Tuesday evening from 6 p.m. Jim Osborne, the new store’s manager, comes to Sevierville having opened and managed the Memphis Bass Pro Shops for more than three years. Prior to that, he spent two years at the Chicago Bass Pro Shops.
