Mark Enyedy,

Mark Enyedy, shown here at the Handicapped Fish Rodeo in 2019, passed away last year, but his love of fishing will live on through his family and volunteers' efforts for the yearly event that will take place on Saturday from noon until 3 p.m. The Ridgway Township Recreation Board, The Ridgway-Elk County Chamber of Commerce, The Handicap Fish Rodeo Organization, the Domtar Fish Hatchery, and the Pennsylvania Fishing Commission come together to bring this event to the Elk County area. "The fishing rodeo is a bunch of kids getting together, throwing their lines in the water and reeling in whatever they can. It's a lot of untangling of line, there are many patient volunteers who do nothing but untangle lines, bait the hooks, and just help the kids. even though we do have trophies– I just think everybody's a winner,' said Mark Enyedy, head of the Handicapped Fish Rodeo said at the event in 2019. Pick up Monday's Ridgway Record for full coverage of the event.
