The stocking is in preparation for the Bill Stokes Memorial Fishing Derby at the pond on May 6, 9AM-Noon.
At today’s event, (40) 4th grade students from Mead and Prendergast Schools participated in stocking the pond by emptying pails of trout.
An osprey was spotted on two occasions attempting to pluck dinner from Colony Pond without much luck while Mayor Dave Cassetti showcased his pond-stocking talents on one occasion.
A DEEP attendant on site indicated that typically most of the stocked trout, raised at Burlington Nursery in Connecticut, will likely end up on dinner tables this spring and summer.
