The 2019 kids fishing derby is on Saturday, May 25th from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Evert Pierson Kids Ponds as part of the Boulder Creek Festival. Rods (and tackle) will be provided by Colorado Parks and Wildlife and prizes will be awarded every hour and also at the end of the derby. The derby is open to all kids 12 and under. Both live bait and lures are allowed, but we recommend bending the barb down on the hooks, especially for those looking to fish catch-and-release.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife and The Boulder Fish and Game Club will be stocking the ponds especially for the derby, so their will be plenty of fish to catch. In addition, there will be club members and volunteers there to help and give helpful tips. If you have any questions please use the “Contact Us” link under the About tab at the top of the page.
