Cold Morning Doesn't Faze Beaumont-Cherry Valley Fishing Derby Contestants

The Beaumont-Cherry Valley Recreation and Park District's 5th Annual Fishing Derby started at 8 a.m. Saturday. Youngsters 14 and under fished for trout at the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District Ponds.

Saturday dawned chilly in the 30s in north Beaumont and Cherry Valley, with fresh snow visible on Yucaipa Ridge, but the cold didn't stop children and their families who took part in the fishing derby at the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District Ponds.

Kaitlyn Carwile, 6, and Kaydin Foster, 6, both of Beaumont, caught five rainbow trout between them in the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Recreation and Park District's 5th Annual Fishing Derby.

"They rang the bell at eight, and as soon as they threw the lines in the water they started biting," Kaitlin's grandfather Anthony Boscarino said. "They caught two in the first three minutes."

The water district stocks the ponds for the derby, Boscarino said. The trout looked healthy and decent size.

"They might have caught the biggest but I think they caught the most," said Kaitlin's mom, Brittany Carwile. "Five one-pounders."

A tournament for ages 15 and older was scheduled to start at 3 p.m. Saturday, Diane Gonzalez of the recreation and park district said.

Open fishing will be offered all day Sunday all day on Sunday for $5. No fishing license is needed per Riverside County Fish and Game, Gonzalez said.
