It's great for the kids ! But every year they stock the pond too close to the fishing derby day and they don't bite because they are in shock from coming from the hatchery What is completely not fair is the city employees get the benefit of fishing after the derby weekend is over and the fish are out of shock and biting ! This sucks for the kids that its ment for! The city should NOT do this any more!!!!!
