Watching Kids Reel in a Big One in Boulder, Colorado
I remember the thrill of reeling in a thrashing fish when I was a kid, my dad cheering me on, “Reel her in nice and slow. Hold up; don’t break the line! That’s it…” At the Evert Pierson kids' fishing pond along Boulder Creek, fathers and daughters, mothers and sons can all cast their line into the murky water where fish lurk beneath the surface, darting here and there looking for flies and grubs, not knowing whether they’re real or crafty bait. Nestled into the creek-side forest, the pond offers a nice family activity.
