Tom Sawyer Fishing Derby

The Pueblo West Parks and Recreation, along with the Jubic family, the Rotary Club of Pueblo West, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife, are sponsors for the Tom Sawyer Fishing Derby.
We appreciate the local volunteers that came out such as; the Pueblo West High School student groups, Pueblo West Women's League, Winey B's, and a local Boy Scout troop.

This year the derby date was finally decided for Saturday, October 8 with 53 children coming out to try their luck.

They did a great job as 125 fish were caught, with some being thrown back.

We hope everyone had a great time, the day was exceptional and we look forward to next year, 2023.


Things you should know:                  Kids ages 4-15 and adults with disabilities are allowed to fish at Cattail Crossing pond.  No fishing license is necessary!
