Fishing Rodeos

Fishing has long been a popular outdoor activity but many people, especially children, have limited fishing opportunities. It is the goal of our program to introduce rodeo participants to fishing and recruit them to be responsible, licensed anglers and good stewards of our aquatic environment. Events will feature edcuational activities focusing on fish, fishing, and environmental concerns. These quality fishing experiences will be provided in a controlled and safe environment. Our rodeo ponds are well stocked with channel catfish to meet our participants expections of catching fish. Fishing educational and technical information are provided by our Fisheries Technical staff, biologists from the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, and volunteer anglers. Boating safety infomation is provided by our Law Enforcement Bureau.

We schedule 50 or more rodeos a year, in all areas of the state. The events are held on Saturday mornings and registration usually begins between 7:00 - 9:00 AM. A schedule is available on the Outreach and Education page under the Fishing Rodeo Schedule tab. 

For more information about local rodeos or the program contact Sherry Hazelwood or Tom Holman at (601) 432-2200, Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
