Each year the Catfish Rodeo happens at the West Wetlands Park thanks to the Yuma Optimist Club, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, Bureau of Land Management, and the City of Yuma Parks & Recreation. This FREE event is so much fun for kids 13 and younger. There are 10 tagged fish in the pond. Children that catch a tagged fish, win a prize. There is always fishing equipment to borrow if you don’t have any, but it is limited.
There are other things happening, too. It’s really fun. It’s a popular event, and there is a body of water, so keep that in mind with your small children.
Date: Saturday, October 21
Time: 7 a.m. – 12 p.m.
