Trout fishing

This 1950s photo, taken from where the museum now stands, shows a completely different view of what is today our Centennial Pond in Lions Park.

In the top right is the Ponoka water tower, which has been gone for several decades, then to the far right is Poor Gordie’s Tastee Delite, one of the first drive-through restaurants in the community.

The occasion at the pond was the annual stocking of trout, with many youngsters and seniors trying to catch a slippery prize for bragging rights and supper.
