The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) is hosting a youth fishing rodeo at the VEC adjacent to Enid Lake on Saturday, May 18. The fishing rodeo is open to youth 15 years and under; registration begins at 7:00 a.m. 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 pond is well stocked with catfish to make it easier for participants to catch fish. Participants will also have the opportunity to test their bowfishing skills in a presentation by the Bowfishing Association of Mississippi (BAM).
Those seeking additional information can call the VEC at (662) 563-8068 or the MDWFP Fisheries Bureau at (601) 432-2200. The VEC is part of the MDWFP’s North Mississippi Fish Hatchery, located at Exit 233 east off I-55.
