Quincy Valley Pikeminnow Derby this weekend
Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
The Quincy Valley Tourism Association’s annual Pikeminnow Derby kicks off this weekend, and if you haven’t registered for the event you still have time. Registrations will be taken at the Crescent Bar Derby Headquarters until 5:30 today.
This popular event not only offers a weekend of fishing fun on the Columbia River, there are two boats being raffled and over $9,000.00 worth of cash and prizes awarded to those who participate.
It also serves another important purpose. It will help remove hundreds of northern pikeminnows from the Columbia River, and they are a primary predator of salmon and steelhead smolt making their way down the river to the ocean. Anglers not only experience the fun of fishing, they get a chance to win some cash and prizes and really help out our fisheries. Everybody wins with this one.
I want to remind folks that there some great fishing events for kids coming up soon. One is the annual Fishing Kids event at the National Fish Hatchery in Leavenworth. To register for the events just click on the Pepsi logo on my web site and follow the links.
Don’t miss this one!
