The fishing rodeo is open to youth ages 15 and under; registration begins at 7 a.m. MVSU is located on Highway 82 in Itta Bena.

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

MDWFP fishing rodeos offer quality fishing experiences for young anglers in a controlled and safe environment. The pond on the MVSU campus 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.
