MAKING THE CATCH, LARGE OR SMALL – Lower Pottsgrove’s police department announced last week that its annual Trout Rodeo has been scheduled for April 23 (2016; Saturday) from 8-11 a.m. in a portion of Sprogel’s Run on the grounds of Sunnybrook Ballroom, 50 Sunnybrook Rd. The rodeo is as much social event as competition. Sons, daughters and their parents (mostly Dads) or grandparents (mostly “Pops”) gather at the creek banks and cast their lines. The department stocks this section of the creek so well that it’s tough not to catch something that wriggles. And it’s often difficult to determine who’s more proud of what gets caught … the kids or the adults. Watch and hear the reactions of both in this video from the 2014 event.
