Youth Fishing Rodeo

Saturday, May 25, 2019 at 7:00am

Lake Bill Waller
81 Columbia Purvis Road
Columbia, MS 39429

Fishing has long been a popular outdoor activity but many people, especially children, have limited fishing opportunities. It is the goal of our program to introduce rodeo participants to fishing and recruit them to be responsible, licensed anglers and good stewards of our aquatic environment. Events will feature educational activities focusing on fish, fishing, and environmental concerns. These quality fishing experiences will be provided in a controlled and safe environment. Our rodeo ponds are well stocked with channel catfish to meet our participants' expectations of catching fish. Fishing educational and technical information are provided by our Fisheries Technical staff, biologists from the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, and volunteer anglers. Boating safety information is provided by our Law Enforcement Bureau.

We schedule 50 or more rodeos a year, in all areas of the state. The events are held on Saturday mornings and registration usually begins between 7:00 - 9:00 AM. A schedule is available on the Outreach and Education page under the Fishing Rodeo Schedule tab.
