SOCASTEE, SC (WMBF) – The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources will host the Socastee Youth Fishing Rodeo on Saturday, October 24, at the Sayebrook Pond near Petco from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. for all youth 15 years of age or younger, according to the SCDNR website.

The event is a bilingual event that will offer resources in both English and Spanish, and a chance for families to gather together and enjoy a morning outdoors.

Adults are allowed to fish with youth participants, but youth need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
