Young anglers show their skills at fishing rodeo

MORTON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Several young anglers got the chance to show their skill this morning at the Roosevelt State Park fishing rodeo

Wildlife experts say the event gives those 15 years or younger the chance to fish in a well-stocked lake.

It's also a chance for families to enjoy some quality time together.

One kid we talked to says he didn't have much luck, and blamed Mother Nature.

Perry Fletcher said, "I would have caught more fish if we had come out a little bit earlier than we started, cause it's too hot right now to get fish because the water's gotten too hot."

That event was sponsored by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks.
