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
