MDWFP and Wall Doxey State Park to Host Youth Fishing Rodeo

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) and Wall Doxey State Park are hosting a youth fishing rodeo at the park pond on Saturday, March 22, 2014.  The fishing rodeo is open to youth 15 years and under, and registration begins at 8 a.m.  Wall Doxey State Park is located on

U. S. Highway 7 approximately 6 miles south of Holly Springs.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing gear, catfish bait, and stringers. 

This rodeo will offer a quality fishing experience for younger anglers in a controlled and safe environment. The rodeo area is well stocked with catfish to make it easier for participants to catch fish, and is a great way for a family to spend quality time together.
