MDWFP & US Forest Service to Host Youth Fishing Rodeo at Clear Springs Recreation Area

JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) and the US Forest Service are hosting a youth fishing rodeo at the Clear Springs Recreation Area on Saturday, April 27, 2013.  The fishing rodeo is open to youth 15 years and under; registration begins at 7:00 a.m.  The Clear Springs Recreation Area is part of the Homochitto National Forest and is located on Highway 84, just west of Meadville, MS.

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

The 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.
