Good number of chinook caught on day one of Roche Harbor Derby

The first day of the Roche Harbor Salmon Classic Invitational on San Juan Island was about as good as it gets for anglers.

A total of 104 fish were weighed in for 334 anglers registered in the derby with Pete Nelson (in the photo) holding the lead with a 16 pound-7 ounce hatchery chinook.

The final day of the derby is Saturday, Feb. 9. First place is $10,000, second place is $5,000, and third place is $3,000.

Last year, 85 boats with 239 anglers caught 93 hatchery chinook (55 hooked on Friday and 38 on Saturday).
