32nd Annual Catfish Rodeo & 10th Annual Nature Fair

The Optimist Club of Yuma host the 32nd Annual Catfish Rodeo!  Youth will take a chance at catching one of ten tagged fish for prizes. While the Catfish Rodeo is going on, everyone is invited to take part in the Nature Fair.  Kids can shoot a bow, learn about gun safety, and see animals that live in our Desert environment.  Participants should bring their own bait and fishing gear; a limited supply of gear is available on loan from the Arizona Game and Fish Department.  Other partners for this event are U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Bureau of Land Management, and the City of Yuma Parks and Recreation Department.
