Fishing Rodeo Planned At Enid Hatchery

ENID LAKE – Children 15 years and younger are invited to a youth fishing rodeo at the North Mississippi Fish Hatchery Visitor Education Center (VEC) beginning at 7 a.m. Saturday, May 16.  The free event is hosted by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP).

            The VEC is located off County Road 457, adjacent to Enid Lake. Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing gear, catfish bait, and stringers. However, a limited amount of fishing gear will be available.

            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 VEC office at (662) 563-8068 or the MDWFP Fisheries Bureau at (601) 432-2200.
