Cops, Kids, Vets Fishing Day casts off June 6
The annual Cops, Kids and Vets Fishing Day takes place June 6 at the Moffat County Public Safety Center’s Little Rascals Pond, 800 W. First St., offering fully stocked waters for children and families to fish for free.
The evening runs from 5 to 7 p.m., but participants are encouraged to arrive early for registration to get their line in the pond as soon as possible with an official cast-off at 5:30 for an hour of competition.
Kids can interact with Craig Police Department, Moffat County Sheriff’s Office and Colorado State Patrol members as well as agents of Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Department of Wildlife who will provide additional poles if needed. Local veterans will also provide free food such as hamburgers, hot dogs and chips.
Awards will go toward the first fish caught, biggest fish and other accolades. Organizers have a multitude of prizes available, though they won’t be surprised to see kids fishing with gear they won last year. Sheriff KC Hume said participants only need two things: a good attitude and their appetite.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for us to interact with those kids and show them how enjoyable outdoor activities like fishing are,” he said. “It’s an activity that they can enjoy not only as a kiddo but as they grow up into adult life as well.”
