MDWFP to Host “Lure You to the Lake” a Youth Fishing Rodeo and Family Fun Day at Prentiss Walker Lake

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks' (MDWFP) Fisheries Bureau will host a youth fishing rodeo and family fun day at Prentiss Walker Lake on Saturday, May 10.  The fishing rodeo is open to youth 15 years and under; registration begins at 7:30 a.m.  Lake fishing permits will be waived for the day, and families are invited to stay and fish with their young anglers after the youth event.  Prentiss Walker Lake is located south of Mize off Highway 35.

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.
