Great time at Swift Ponds

About two dozen of Loveland's finest anglers had a productive day of catch-and-release fishing at Swift Ponds Thursday, May 16, courtesy of our friends with Colorado Youth Outdoors.

Most of the bass caught weren't great, but they were plentiful, and some handsome bluegill went for an artificial snack.

CYO will also be joining the club for the June 1 Loveland Kids Fishing Derby, and will be our host again in July for the annual Girl Scouts outing at Swift.
Last catch of the day.  Merle Gordon kept pestering this 17 1/4" smallmouth until  it took a bite of his  grub on  his last cast of the afternoon.  

Boyd Lake needing help with fishing clinics this summer

If you have a few hours to spare on a Saturday morning this summer, consider helping Colorado Parks and Wildlife with a fishing clinic for young campers.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (meet at the Boyd Lake Visitors Center at 8:30 a.m.)
Fishing gear will be provided; participants must be 18 or younger and accompanied by an adult.  They'd like two or three club members to help the team lead.
Here are the dates:
May 25
June 8 (a Jax-sponsored Boat Day at the lake)
June 22
July 3
Sunday, July 25, Adventure Day Camp
Aug. 31
