The Richmond Golden Rods and Reels Society once again ran a well organized bullhead derby for kids and seniors at Garry Point Park today. This year’s attendance is the highest in many years, just over 100 kids took part. Largest bullhead was measured at 9 inches long, while the largest non-bullhead species was a 14.5 inches long northern pikeminnow. All fish were carried to the measuring station by the kids, measured and returned to the river. Beside bullhead and a few other coarse fish species, some starry flounders were also caught.
