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

Fishing rodeos offer a quality fishing experience for younger anglers in a controlled and safe environment. Rodeo ponds are well stocked with catfish to make it easier for participants to catch fish. This event is a great way for families to spend quality time together.
