BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

Sponsors are needed for Blytheville’s 4th annual Fishing Rodeo Derby.

Blytheville Parks and Recreation Director Elroy Brown said sponsors are needed to help give participants door prizes such as bicycles.

The fishing derby will be at Walker Park Pond from 8 a.m.- 12 p.m. on May 20.

The pond will be full of about 300 catchable channel catfish stocked by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
