Annual Kids Fishing Rodeo

The Annual Kids Fishing Rodeo is held on the 3rd Saturday in April. This year was the 16th anniversary of the Fishing Rodeo at Welaka National Fish Hatchery, and thanks to the efforts of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and local merchants, we had another successful event. Kids 15 years old and under participated and enjoyed a fun filled day of fishing and drawing for prizes. Please be sure to mark April 16th, 2011 on your calendars for the 17th Annual Kids Fishing Rodeo at the Welaka National Fish Hatchery!

For commentary and pictures from the 2010 Kids Fishing Rodeo, please view the Town of Welaka's May 2010 Newsletter (Pages 1 and 6).
