Puget Sound Anglers Lake Washington Trout Derby results

The Lake Washington Trout Derby hosted by the Puget Sound Anglers of Lake Washington Chapter was held last Saturday, and a low pressure system that passed through made for fairly tough fishing.

The Derby was open to the public, and 66 anglers caught 20 fish.

In addition to the trout, several large sockeye were hooked and released.

First place went to Tyler Martz, on the left in the photo, with a cutthroat weighing in at 2 pounds, 12.5 ounces, and he took home $300.

Robert McIntosh took second place and $200 with a 2 pound, 9 ounce cutthroat, and third place and $100 went to Johnny Parsons for his 2 pound, 7.5 ounce cutthroat.

Katy Peck (pictured on the right) was fourth place overall and first in the Kids’ Division with her 2 pound, 4.5 ounce rainbow.

Liz Baluch scored the mystery weight with an 11 ounce cutthroat.

The fish were somewhat smaller than last year’s Derby, probably due to the weather, according to Rich Elliott, a PSA Lake Washington Chapter spokesman.

“Anglers found fish primarily off the southern and northern ends of Mercer Island and in the East Channel,” he said.

The Lake Washington and Renton PSA chapters faced off in the annual “Swine Cup” competition, determined by the combined lengths of the three largest fish caught by each chapter.

PSA Lake Washington Chapter edged out the PSA Renton Chapter who get to display the nefarious trophy for one more year. Derby sponsors were Fetha Styx, Brad’s and Pro-Troll, Outdoor Emporium and Cabelas.
