Today I was on the bus. I got to play on my mom’s phone. I was going to Rendezvous Park. I was stocking cut throat fish in the pond. People want to fish there but there was not any fish. Are class put in 350 fish. They are big enough to catch. They came from a hatchery in Auburn, Wyoming, in a big truck with a water tank full of fish.
The fish were caught in nets and moved to a bucket. When the bucket was full (we took it down to the pond’s edge). We would reach in, get a fish and throw it into the pond. They were awfully slimy. Our hands became slimy. You can go fishing on Saturday and you can keep the rod that you were fishing with.

Another community event on June 3rd: the final fish stocking at R Park for children with rods for all. Fishing will be a blast!
