Waterloo trout derby canceled because of frozen pond

Posted:

Denison Parks and Recreation officials preparing for a fishing derby had to break the ice at Waterloo Lake Park's pond Friday in order to stock the 1,700 rainbow trout fishermen were seeking in a Saturday event. Shortly after stocking the pond, it froze back over. The bitter cold has forced parks and rec to cancel the "Howard Caylor Adult Trout Derby" for this year. Not to worry, said Parks and Rec Athletic Supervisor Andrew Means, the Family Fellowship Trout Derby is slated for Waterloo's pond in two weeks. That event is open to everyone and they're hoping for a bit warmer weather that weekend.
