Release Date: 10/12/2017

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and City of Grambling invite you to join them for a Get Out and Fish! event on Saturday, Nov. 4 at Grambling City Park. The pond will be stocked with 400 pounds of adult channel catfish prior to the event - a perfect size to load the ice chest with to bring home.
 
The event is free, and the first 100 youth registrants (ages 15 and under) will receive a goody bag. In addition, every participant will be entered into a raffle drawing to win a slue of prizes.
 
Lunch will be provided by the City of Grambling while supplies last.
 
Fishing competition categories include heaviest catfish and heaviest “other” fish.  Age divisions include Little Angler (ages 8 and under), Junior Angler (ages 9-15) and Adult Angler (ages 16 and older). You can pre-register for this event at www.wlf.la.gov/get-out-and-fish-1 .
 
Participants 16 and older must possess a valid Louisiana fishing license available for purchase online at https://www.la.wildlifelicense.com . Don’t forget to bring your own gear, bait and tackle and an ice chest to keep your catch.
 
The Get Out and Fish! Program seeks to increase the number of people with access to quality fishing. The program intends to recruit new anglers to the sport of fishing and promote outdoor activities for future generations.
 
This event is hosted in conjunction with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation. The LWFF was formed to provide a means for individuals and corporations to become partners with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission in the challenge of conserving Louisiana’s wildlife and fish resources.
