DOW Studying Lyons Fish

Ben Swiggle and a team of fish biologists from the Colorado Division of Wildlife were in town this week to study the fish population in the St. Vrain River.

Thank you for a Fabulous Season!

Dear Lyon-ites,
We want to thank everyone who made it out to our Farmers Market this past summer and fall. We had a fabulous season with beautiful veggies, eggs, and flowers from the Farmette, Pachamama, Aspen Moon, and Lone Hawk farms. We’ll be back again next year and we’re already looking forward to it, after we lay low a while for the winter!

Thanks again,
Mike and Betsy

"Catch and Release!"

Last Thursday (October 21), Martin Middledorf spotted this black bear in the river, just east of the intersection of Rtes. 36/66. He estimates that the bruin, which was probably fishing for some trout before its long winter nap, was at least 400 pounds.
