JACKSON - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) and Canton Parks and Recreation are hosting a youth fishing rodeo at the Turcotte Education Center ponds on Saturday, March 29.  The fishing rodeo is open to youth 15 years and under; registration begins at 7 a.m.  The ponds are located at the MDWFP Central Region Office on State Highway 43, approximately 5 miles south of Canton.

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.
