Father’s Day Fishing Derby is Sunday in Avon

AVON, Colorado – The town of Avon is hosting the Burger King Father’s Day Fishing Derby on Sunday from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at Harry A. Nottingham Park. The Colorado Division of Wildlife stocks the lake with hungry fish each summer to gear up for this family-friendly event.

Along with fishing, families can enjoy the Swedish Fish Guessing Contest and the petting zoo with goats, bunnies, lambs and many more fun-furry critters. Take a try at catching the biggest fish or the most accurate fly-fishing cast to win great prizes such as new fishing poles, tackle boxes, Burger King gift certificates and tons of new shiny tackle.

This event is for children 15 years of age and under. Those individuals ages 16 and older who will be fishing will need a valid Colorado State fishing license. Pets are not allowed.
