Fishing rodeo schedule online now

Mississippi_Department_of_Wildlife_Fisheries_and_Parks_logoThe Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) has finalized the 2014 Youth Fishing Rodeo schedule. Fishing rodeos are open to youth ages 15 and under. The schedule will be published in the March-April edition of Mississippi Outdoors magazine and can be found online at www.mdwfp.com under the Education and Outreach tab of the Fishing and Boating page.
“We are very excited about this year’s season,” said Youth Rodeo Coordinator, Sherry Hazelwood. “We have 45 rodeos scheduled that will be held across the state from J. P. Coleman State Park in Northeast Mississippi to the City of Biloxi on the Gulf Coast. Our rodeos offer quality fishing experiences for young anglers in a controlled and safe environment. The locations are well stocked with catfish to make it easier for children to catch fish, plus rodeos are a great way for families to spend quality time together.”
Fishing rodeos dates, locations, and times are subject to change. Updates will be posted on the MDWFP website.
