Canby Pond youth fishing event cancelled
 
October 17, 2011

 

CLACKAMAS, Ore. — A family fishing event scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 22 at Canby Pond has been cancelled in response to the presence of thick aquatic vegetation.

The one-acre pond is located at Canby Community Park.

“Unfortunately there is more aquatic vegetation in the pond than we would like to see for a family fishing event,” said Todd Alsbury, fish biologist for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s North Willamette Watershed District.

Alsbury said thick aquatic vegetation at the popular fishing hole has been an ongoing challenge. This condition makes retrieving spin casting effectively difficult, especially for youngsters.

The event would have been the last of 33 youth fishing events across the state hosted this year by ODFW.

ODFW had planned to release more than 2,000 legal-sized and larger rainbow trout at Canby Pond for the youth fishing event. Those fish will be redirected to other Willamette Valley water bodies, and Canby Pond will be stocked as soon as conditions improve.
