MDWFP & Cleveland Park Commission to Host Youth Fishing Rodeo at Bear Pen Park

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) and the Cleveland Park Commission are hosting a youth fishing rodeo at Bear Pen Park on Saturday, July 12.  The fishing rodeo is open to youth 15 years and under; registration begins at 7:30 a.m.  Bear Pen Park is located on Court Street in Cleveland.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own cane poles, bait, and stringers. 

Fishing 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.

Those seeking additional information can call the Cleveland Park Commission at (662) 846-6605 or the MDWFP Fisheries Bureau at (601) 432-2200.
