FRISCO — More than 120 children cast their lines on Thursday as part of the town of Frisco’s annual Fourth of July fishing derby.

The more than 100 young anglers fished for two hours on Thursday at Meadow Creek Pond at the annual event hosted in conjunction with the Gore Range Chapter of Trout Unlimited.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife stocked the pond for the derby, and during the two-hour competition 75 fish were caught and released, a number touted as “a record” by town spokeswoman Vanessa Agee in a news release.

Prizes were provided by Frisco Walmart, The Colorado Angler and Frisco Bay Marina.
