CLEVELAND, MS - Youth 15 years and younger are invited to a youth fishing rodeo at Bear Pen Park beginning at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, July 16. The free event is hosted by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) and the Tallaha District Cub Scouts.

Bear Pen Park is located on College Street in Cleveland. Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing gear, catfish bait, and stringers.  

The event is a good opportunity for young anglers to fish a lake that is well stocked with catfish which are typically easy to catch. Families are invited to come enjoy quality time together in a safe environment.
