Had another great derby this year with 51 participants and 39 fish weighed in. Had about 35 of the entrants plus 15 other friends, family, and derby committee members for a total of 50 at the awards BBQ. It was at the Kalama Marina Day park with door prizes for almost all the entrants plus Burgers with all the fixins, potato salad, chips, and homemade chocolate chip cookies plus drinks for all. Friday and Saturday were nice, Sunday was pretty rough on the Columbia but most of the winning fish were turned in on Sunday. I was hoping for more entry's from people here on IFISH (yes that's you MegaByte, Big Ears, Silver Hilton, CCW, and others) as I'm sure with your skills you could have finished in the money!
Maybe next year. Here are the winners and prizes.
1st Largest Jan Thompson 9.47 lbs $750
2nd Largest Keith Isaacson 9.10 lbs $500
3rd Largest Dave Ellertson 8.86 lbs $300
4th Largest (this replaced the youth prize as there were no youth fish
weighed, sad) Steve Long 8.7 lbs $250
Ladies Largest Darlene Nicholson 8.84 lbs $250
Smallest fish Kirk Harrison (Yes me) 2.99 lbs rod and reel.
Here is a link to some photos
Hope to see you all next year,
