GV Spring Fishing Derby and Pancake Breakfast is a hit
On Saturday, April 27, Greenwood Village hosted its resident families to an early morning of fishing, fun and free food. As it has since the 1900s, the city stocked the large pond (or small lake) at Tommy Davis Park at 9200 E. Orchard Rd. with 300 fish from a trout farm in Boulder ranging in size from 8 inches to 20 inches long. More than 325 people aged 1 to 81 came out to play. Dozens of kids, with help from parents and grandparents, threw their fishing lines in to try to reel in one of the trout. Those who were successful took their fish to the city-staffed cleaning station and came back a few minutes later to pick up their prize catch, cut, cleaned and gutted, ready to go directly onto the grill for dinner. About 40 fish were caught. Those remaining will stay in the pond for their natural life unless they are caught on another day. Fishing at Tommy Davis Park remains open to all with no license required.
