MDWFP Invites Youth to Fishing Rodeo Events in Philadelphia and Grenada

GRENADA AND PHILADELPHIA - Youth 15 years and younger are invited to fishing rodeos being held at two locations on Saturday, June 10. All events are free, and they provide a good opportunity for young anglers to fish a lake that is well stocked with catfish which are typically easy to catch. Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing gear, catfish bait, and stringers. Families are invited to come enjoy quality time together in a safe environment.

The Philadelphia rodeo is hosted by MDWFP and is being held at Neshoba County Lake located 6 miles southeast of Philadelphia off Hwy 486. Fishing will start at 7 a.m. Call the lake office at (601) 656-7376 for more information.

The Grenada Reservoir catfish ponds are the site for the rodeo in Grenada. The event begins at 8 a.m. The rodeo ponds are located near the north end of the Grenada Reservoir dam.  Contact the Grenada Reservoir U.S. Army Corps of Engineers office at (662) 227-0234 for more information.
