MDWFP to Host Youth Fishing Rodeo at RecCon Lake in Bolivar County
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP)Fisheries Bureau will host a youth fishing rodeo at RecCon Lake on Saturday, October 20, 2012.  The fishing rodeo is open to youth 15 years old and under; registration begins at 7:30 a.m.  RecCon Lake is located two miles west of Mound Bayou, off of West Mound Bayou Road in Bolivar County.
 
"This rodeo offers a quality fishing experience for younger anglers in a controlled and safe environment," according to MDWFP fisheries biologist Nathan Aycock. "Our rodeo net is well stocked with catfish to make it easier for our participants to catch fish.  This is a great way for a family to spend quality time together." Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing gear, catfish bait, and stringers.
 
Those seeking additional information can call the MDWFP Fisheries Bureau at (601) 432-2200 or Fishing Rodeo Coordinator Sherry Hazlewood at (601) 562-9696.
