Nice work Rotary. Good opportunity for kids to learn and get a feel for the sport. Whatever you do, don't eat those "city" fish, however...Road runoff on 3 sides, bird poop and trash from local residents make this lake a hot zone. (Sorry Hopkin) Because most dont eat them, this lake probably still holds fish to catch and release for some other poor sucker to eat .

Wait, it appears there has been a photo mixup, the photo that was supposed to accompany this story was accidentally switched with a photo from a different story profiling an affordable housing developer.

If they built an affordable pond near either of the 2 new train stations, I might move there. They would still need to have fish in them or I would get lonely.

There's a reason they call it "Froggy style".

Fish and Game will be stocking some fish in the lake. Kids always have fun learning how to fish and how to protect environment while going from station to station.
