The annual youth fishing rodeo will be held at the North Mississippi Fish Hatchery Visitor Education Center (VEC) at Enid on Saturday, May 20th. This free event is for children ages 15 and younger. Registration begins at 7:00 a.m. The NMFH VEC pond will be stocked with catfish just for this youth activity.
Young anglers are encouraged to bring their own fishing equipment and bait along with a container to take their catch home. Prizes will be awarded. This event is a great opportunity for young anglers to catch their first fish or to practice their fishing techniques before hitting the local lakes and ponds!
If you have any questions, call the NMFH Visitor Education Center at (662) 563-8068.
The VEC is part of MDWFP North Mississippi Fish Hatchery and is located at Exit 233 east off I-55.
