The Geaux Fish Rodeos are designed to catch and release rainbow trout, which are not native fish to Louisiana.
BREC will present awards for various activities including casting contests, smallest and largest fish contests and to the family who catches the most fish.
West Marine proudly sponsors these events. They are free and open to all ages.

On days other than the rodeo on Jan. 12, the four parks will be stocked with the fish, and there is a four fish limit.
