Shoals area youths have an opportunity to fish for trophies and other prizes along with a chance to win a college scholarship.

A Crappie Kids Fishing Rodeo for children 12 and younger is 9-11 a.m. Saturday, March 31 at Riverfront Park in Sheffield. Registration will begin at 8 a.m.. There is no charge to enter. The children can use live bait and fish for all species of fish. Children must be accompanied by an adult and have their own fishing tackle.

The fishing rodeo is sponsored by Colbert County Tourism and Convention Bureau, The City of Sheffield and Sheffield Parks and Recreation Department. It is the first Crappie Kids event in Colbert County since 2015.

“Crappie Kids Fishing Rodeos are lots of fun. It’s a great opportunity for families to spend time together, while enjoying the outdoors and our beautiful Tennessee River,” said Susann Hamlin, president and CEO of Colbert County Tourism.

Prizes will be awarded to the top anglers. Lunch will be provided. All participants will be entered into a drawing for college scholarships that will be awarded later this year.

The kid’s fishing rodeo is being held in conjunction with a Crappie USA tournament on Pickwick and Wilson lakes March 31. Many of the nation’s top crappie anglers are competing in the tournament. Weigh-in begins at 3 p.m. at Riverfront Park.
