Typically, during this time of year, parks staff, sponsors and kids are anxiously anticipating the Annual Kids Fishing Contest held annually on the 2nd Saturday in June at the Arvada Reservoir. Parks staff would be polishing up the grills. Sponsors would be sending us bikes and other prizes, and kids all over Arvada would be practicing their fishing techniques in hopes of catching the big one at the tournament!
Unfortunately, this is not a typical year. Due to the coronavirus health crisis, we regret having to report that the status of the Kids Fishing Contest is currently on hold.
While we don’t yet have the mechanisms in place to bring you this beloved event, the parks team is exploring creative ways to hold the event in the future. At this time, we cannot predict what that may look like, but as this situation changes, we will provide updates to you as soon as they are available. We invite you to check back here and on the City’s social media platforms for updates regarding the fishing contest.
In the meantime, you can get your fishing poles out for the Virtual Kids Fishing Photo Celebration June 13-21, 2020.
