Dry Pond Fishing Derby

Date: Sunday, Aug 5th, 2018

This year we are bringing back the Fishing Derby to Fiesta Days. But how? The pond is empty and dry!


Lockwood Valley resident Stan McCuen is donating the steel fish he made and displayed at the pond earlier this year to create a Dry Pond Fishing Derby. We will be using these 50 to 60 metal fish posted on stakes in the ground. To catch a fish cast a line (poles, lines, and weights are supplied) into the basket on the ground below the fish.
