Courier Carp Catch

  View Printable Version 

A carp fishing tournament attracted about 200 contestants to the Cedar River in downtown Waterloo last weekend. To read about it go to Carp catch, dragon boats cap off festival. Pictures from the contest can be seen at The Waterloo/Cedar Falls Courier, which ran the event.

The contest winner caught 123 pounds of fish. Unwanted fish caught in the contest were donated to the nearby Hartman Reserve Nature Center in Cedar Falls to feed osprey chicks in the center's osprey program.
