Canby Pond fishing event cancelled


The pond in Canby Park is overgrown with acquatic plants and algae

A family fishing event scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 19 at Canby Pond has been cancelled in response to the presence of thick aquatic vegetation.

The one-acre pond is located at Canby Community Park.

“Unfortunately there is more aquatic vegetation in the pond than we would like to see for a family fishing event,” said Jeff Fulop, fish biologist for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s North Willamette Watershed District.

Fulop said thick aquatic vegetation at the popular fishing hole has been an ongoing challenge. This condition makes retrieving spin casting effectively difficult, especially for youngsters.
