Northern Pikeminnow Fishing Derby May 17-19 at Crescent Bar

Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:

There is an event coming up that you’ll want to plan on attending.  It’s the annual Northern Pikeminnow Fishing Derby, sponsored by the Quincy Valley Tourism Association, the same folks that bring you the Trout Derby at Burke Lake.  The derby headquarters is at Crescent Bar, and the event will take place on May 17-19.

There is a good chance that you could win one of two fishing boats that will be raffled at the end of the derby.  One is 12-foot Smoker Craft Alaskan, with motor and trailer.  The other is a 10-foot Smoker Craft john boat, with motor and trailer.

In addition to these two boats there is $9,000.00 in cash prizes to be handed out.  There will be cash awarded to the top 20 with the largest cumulative catch over the three days of the event.

Cash is also provided to the top ten biggest Single Catch on Saturday and Sunday.  There is cash being paid to the top three Single Catch in the Youth Division on Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets are $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for the Youth Division, age 15 and under.  Tickets are available at Quincy Valley Hardware, Hooked on Toys, High Mountain Hunting Supply, and on-line.  To get a complete list of the rules and registration forms you can go to www.quincyvalleytourism.org.
