Parker Police Officers will teach children between the ages of 5-15 how to fish and assist them as they cast their first line at the third annual Cops and Bobbers event Saturday, June 2.
Officers will first teach the children how to cast a fishing line in a casting class. After that, the amateur anglers will join more than 20 Parker Police Officers and catch two trout in the stocked pond. Their catch will be packed on ice allowing them to take the fish home for dinner.
Cops and Bobbers takes place on Saturday, June 2, starting at 9:00 a.m. The final fish will be pulled from the pond at 11:30 a.m. Parker residents between the ages of five and fifteen are eligible to participate in the event. The event is being held at the Meridian pond, near Lincoln and Meridian Boulevard. The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department and Bass Pro Shop supplied fishing-poles that participants can take home after the event, along with their fish.
