BOZEMAN - Today's great weather helped draw hundreds of people to the Watershed Festival at the Bozeman Fish Technology Center.
The festival, put on by the Montana Outdoor Science School, is held to raise awareness, appreciation and understanding of the Montana's watersheds.
While there was a lot to do there today, the big draw was the fishing derby. It had kids of all ages tossing their lines in the water, hoping to catch a big one.
Each child could catch two fish. For many, it was a whopping success.
Kate Forest of Bozeman was there with her children. It took them just a short amount of time to get their fish, which they were proud to show off.
"She caught the first fish two years in a row. Awesome. We'll be eating fish for a week," Kate said of her daughter, Annie.
Her son, Charlie, was happy with his catch, but a little sad that he had to eat it.
"I wish I didn't have to eat my awesome fish," he said.
This is the 15th year for the Watershed Festival, which is sponsored by the Montana Outdoor Science School.
