MDWFP to Host Youth Fishing Rodeo

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Visitor Education Center (VEC) adjacent to Enid Lake will host a youth fishing rodeo on Saturday, October 19. The fishing rodeo is open to youth ages 15 and under. Registration begins at 7:00 a.m. 

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 rodeo is a great way for a family to spend quality time together.
