Another Great Kids Fishing Derby

More than 400 young anglers and their families lined the banks of the North Lake Duck Pond Saturday, and put a pretty heavy dent in the trout population.

Prizes of fishing tackle boxes and spin cast rod and reels were awarded throughout the day for raffle winners, made possible through donations from Cabelas, Jax and Sportsmen's Warehouse.

The big winners for the day included the largest trout, a 14-inch rainbow caught by Keira Byl; the smallest was an 8 1/2 rainbow hauled in by Nika Green.  About 900 trout were stocked in the pond on Friday by Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and the unlucky trout who fell to kids' fishing were cleaned and cooked for those kids by volunteers from Colorado Youth Outdoors.

The Loveland Fishing Club continued its heavy support of the annual event, managing the prize program, loaning poles and providing the anglers with bait.
