Youth fishing rodeo planned for Saturday in Oxford

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) and the Lafayette County Law Enforcement Officers Association will host a youth fishing rodeo at Lake Patsy on Saturday, September 14. The fishing rodeo is open to youth ages 15 and under.

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m.  Lake Patsy is located in Oxford.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing gear, catfish bait, and stringers.

MDWFP fishing rodeos offer a quality fishing experience for young anglers in a controlled and safe environment. The rodeo area is well stocked with catfish to make it easier for participants to catch fish.  This rodeo is a great way for a family to spend quality time together.
