If you plan on participating in the Lake Stevens Kokanee Derby on May 21 you might want to get your ticket sooner than later.
Mike Chamberlain at Ted’s Sports Center in Lynnwood told me that they plan to cap the derby at 300 adult tickets. Cost is $20 for anglers 15 and older, and free for those under age 14.
“This was an extremely popular event last year, and I am sure that it will be such again this year,” Chamberlain said. “We have “lots” of great prizes for those participating in the derby.’
Chamberlain also said they’ll be filling reels for the derby with either 6 or 8 pound Sufix Line free of charge.
