One of the lakes will be stocked with catfish courtesy of TWRA. Participants need to sign in at the Beach parking lot area sometime between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. to receive their free ticket to qualify for door prizes to be given away at 10:00 a.m. after the fishing is over. All ages are welcome to fish at this event. Prizes are for visitors ages 15 and under. Ticket holders must be present to receive their prize! There will also be free hotdogs, chips, and drinks during the door prizes giveaway! There will be no prizes for the biggest fish, most fish, etc. There will only be door prizes given away. “Come out to Grundy Lakes and join us for an exciting day of fishing and fellowship,” said Park Ranger Brent Smith. “Fishing is free on this day for people of all ages. So, bring your kids, moms, dads, cousins, friends, etc. and be ready to catch some fish. We wish to thank all of our sponsors ahead of time for their donations, which have allowed us to organize this Fishing Rodeo. We will thank them by name at the event and later in a future article after the Fishing Rodeo is completed. We hope everyone that is able will join us on this day for a fun day of fishing at the lake!”
