MDWFP & the Itta Bena Community Outreach Committee to Host Youth Fishing Rodeo at Roebuck Lake

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) and the Itta Bena Community Outreach Committee are hosting a youth fishing rodeo at Roebuck Lake on Saturday, August 30.  The fishing rodeo is open to youth 15 years and under; registration begins at 7 a.m.  The event will be located on Roebuck Lake at the east end of Lakeside Drive in Itta Bena.


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


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


Those seeking additional information may call Tommie Verdell at (662) 254-3628 or the MDWFP Fisheries Bureau at (601) 432-2200.
