JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) and the Coahoma County Chamber of Commerce are hosting a youth fishing rodeo at the Coahoma County Expo Center on Saturday, June 8. The fishing rodeo is open to youth 12 years and under. On-site registration will begin at 10:00 a.m., although pre-registration at the Chamber of Commerce office is preferred.  Fishing will begin at 10:30 a.m.

The fishing rodeo is being held in conjunction with the 30th Annual Delta Jubilee in Clarksdale.  This festival will feature additional family-oriented activities over a 2-day period. The Coahoma County Expo Center is located at 1150 Wildcat Drive in Clarksdale. 

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

MDWFP fishing rodeos offer a quality fishing experience for young anglers in a controlled and safe environment. The rodeo pond is well stocked with catfish to make it easier for participants to catch fish.  This event is a great way for a family to spend quality time together.
