If You Love to Fish, You Will Enjoy This Family-Friendly Fishing Adventure on Saturday

No plans Saturday? Grab your fishing pole and head to Geaux Fish Catfish Rodeo at North Sherwood Forest Community Park on February 29th!

Geaux Fish Rodeos present a great opportunity for new anglers to get introduced to the sport of fishing or for old veterans who wish to test their skills. There will also be prizes galore! Don’t miss this chance to bring home channel catfish for dinner and spend the day outside with the family.

The pond at BREC’s North Sherwood Forest Community Park will be stocked with catfish. Fishermen will be allowed to keep what they reel in and there is a fish cleaning station on site. Fishing equipment is not provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their own rod and reel, bait and an ice chest to easily store and transport your fish. Participants 16 and older are required by state law to have a fishing license, which can be purchased online at www.wlf.louisiana.gov or in-person at the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries’ office in Baton Rouge.

This event is weather dependent. Geaux Fish Catfish Rodeo is free, but registration is required. Please register online at www.brec.org. Registration in the morning is also available. For additional information, please email conservation@brec.org or call 225-272-9200.

If you feel like escaping The Crossing Apartments in Denham Springs, Louisiana for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that! Trust us when we say that there’s no harm in getting out and exploring the greater community.
