21st Annual Women's Derby Kicks Off This Weekend

Painter's Lodge - June 20, 2013

The 21st Annual Women’s Fishing Derby takes place this weekend, and it couldn’t be happening at a better time. The Coho have arrived and are getting bigger by the day, and there are still plenty of Chinook being caught as well.

Brandt Tractor recently held a corporate retreat at Painter’s Lodge and their fishing results were staggering: 2660.20 pounds of fish were caught over two days, including a 58 pound halibut and a 31 pound Tyee. Our fish cooler was filled to capacity and everyone went home with their fair share of salmon. If this is any indication of what the fishing will be like over the next few days the ladies should be in for quite a weekend.

In addition to the fishing, this weekend features live entertainment, a Disney-themed dinner and an awards ceremony. The Women’s Fishing Derby always proves to be one of the highlights of our season, and this year should be no different. Stay tuned to ‘Dock Talk’ for updates and results from the derby!

Catch you later,
