The Annual East Lake Fishing Rodeo happening this Saturday, lake stocking event featuring USFL and Bass Masters on Friday

It’s going to be a great weekend for family fun at the 2022 Annual East Lake Fishing Rodeo. There will be an East Lake fish stocking event on Friday, June 10 and the Fishing Rodeo will take place on Saturday June 11, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at East Lake Park. The annual event is being sponsored by District 2 City Councilor Hunter Williams and the Birmingham Parks and Recreation Board.

On Friday June 10, there will be a great opportunity for the kids to meet players from the USFL, and learn fishing skills from professional Bass Masters while the lake is being stocked with over 2,000 pounds of catfish. That event will be on Friday, June 10 at 2 p.m.

On Saturday, June 11, the Fishing Rodeo will be held at East Lake Park and citizens are welcome to take part in all the great giveaways including prizes for the first ten fish and the three largest fish. Be sure to bring your own fishing equipment, however there is no need for fishing license. The event will happen rain or shine and there will be food vendors and other booths set up for people to enjoy.

“Events like this are such a great opportunity to reconnect with friends and have some fun. This year we’re adding more kid-oriented events and we hope to get a whole new generation of young people interested in fishing and learning about all that East Lake Park has to offer,” Councilor Williams said. “I look forward to this event every year and I know so many people in this city do as well. It’s going to be great seeing everyone out there this weekend.”
