Katfishin’ Kids was held June 1, 2019 from 7:00am – 11:00am. There were approx. 210 youth that participated in the event.
Katfishin’ Kids is an event sponsored by The Mississippi Wildlife Federation where children learn the basics of fishing. They are taught how to tie a knot, select the correct lure, bait hooks and cast. In addition, they learn what a fish is and become familiar with its habitat. The pond is stocked with catfish and they are free to try their hand at fishing. This is a free event for children ages 15 and under to teach them all about fishing.
