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.

For more information about the youth fishing rodeo, call the park office at (601) 732-6316 or the MDWFP Fisheries Bureau at (601) 432-2200.
