This Saturday is the annual Rio Rodeo
Rios can reach up to 2 pounds in weight, but most average 8 to 12 inches. Hooking one on a lightweight fly rod is like "fighting a wet cat". For this reason, many participants will be using fiberglass rods or graphite rods in the 2 to 4 weight range.
This event is open to the public. Onsite registration begins at 7:00am Saturday. Fishing time starts at 8:00am. Weigh-in is at 12 noon. Entry fee is $10 with all proceeds going to Casting For Recovery. All entry fish must be caught on fly tackle using artificial flies. Lunch and refreshments will be available for participants. The registration and weigh-in will be at the intersection of Henry Thomas Drive and Palm Drive.
