As of 3:15 p.m., 79 hatchery chinook had been checked-in at the five boat ramp weigh-in stations in the eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca at Freshwater Bay, Port Angeles, Sequim, Gardiner, and Port Townsend.

This fishing derby was formerly the Discovery Bay Salmon Derby, and is now hosted by the Gardiner Salmon Derby Association, a Washington nonprofit corporation that supports local emergency services and other community needs in the Gardiner and Diamond Point areas.

The event is part of the NMTA’s Northwest Salmon Derby Series, which promotes many fishing events in the area.
