The Bozeman Fish Tech Center kid’s fishing derby (June 7, 2014) is held each year in conjunction with the Watershed Festival organized by Montana Outdoor Science School. It was a beautiful spring day in Montana, and an estimated crowd of 2,000 attended the overall event; based on the number of rainbow trout caught/cleaned/bagged, about 600 kids took part in the pond derby. The derby was highly successful (thanks to BFTC, AADAP, and Montana FWCO staffers, and volunteers), with many praising comments and thank you’s from parents and kids. USFWS photo.
