Derby Countdown

June 4, 2014

Believe it or not, there are only 4 days remaining in our annual Spring Fling Derby. And with predictions for the best fishing in decades, it’s interesting to see whether there might be some indication early in the season. Typically, if you’re lucky enough to catch a Chinook in the Spring, you’re looking at 8-14lbs. But this year, many have exceeded the norm. Here’s a list of our current Derby leaders:

  • Salmon Fishing Painter

In 1st Place: Karen Van Slyke – 27.4 lbs.

In 2nd Place: Lucy Pottinger – 24.0 lbs.

In 3rd Place: Joe Skerritt – 23.7 lbs.

Honourable Mentions: Karen Lu – 22.6 lbs.

Mike Hussey 21.7

Richard Bogan – 21.2

John Somerville – 20.9 lbs.

Our leaders after June 7th are eligible for some amazing getaway prizes, and as you can see, it’s a pretty tight race. But with several days remaining anything can happen!
