MORTON - Children 15 years and younger are invited to a youth
fishing rodeo at Roosevelt State Park beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday,
July 23. The free event is hosted by the Mississippi Department of
Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP).
Roosevelt State Park is located off Hwy 13 near Morton.
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.
