NATCHITOCHES – Fishing University is a 32 year old, Emmy nominated TV program, airing 11 times per week, and seen in all 50 states and 51 other countries.  Fishing University visited Natchitoches in early February, where fishing legends Charlie Ingram and Ray Brazier competed in a friendly competition on Sibley Lake and Cane River Lake while being filmed. 


During their visit, the gentlemen also hosted an hour long program at Natchitoches Central High School where the local fishing teams including Natchitoches Central High School, Lakeview High School, Northwestern State University and a host of other students sat in. 


In addition to the two celebrities, three local gentlemen talked about the importance of education and how it landed them successful careers in the outdoors.  Those participating from our area were Troy O’Rourke Retired U.S. Army Special Forces and Competitive Angler, Hunter Mullikin, Landowner Assistance Manager with Walsh Timber Company, and Justin Cooper, Toledo Bend Fishing Guide.
