Here is the latest fishing report from Dave Graybill, longtime Eastern Washington outdoor radio host and angler:
The derby in Brewster sold 365 of a possible 375 tickets, and anglers caught an amazing number of fish.
I heard estimates between three and four hundred, with just over one hundred officially weighed in. The rest of them were wild kings that had to be released.
There was a big crowd hanging around derby central on Sunday afternoon to learn the results and win raffle prizes. Once again J.D. Smith and his wife Rebecca and their whole crew did a fantastic job getting sponsors and prizes for the derby. There is a huge list of people to thank and you just have to come to next year’s derby to learn about everyone that helps out behind the scenes.
The first place winner with a king weighing over 26 pounds was Daryl White. He picked up a check for $1,600.00.
In the youth division, age nine to 14, the top place was taken by Trey Krause. He won a whopping $800.00. For the first time the derby added another category to the youth division, for kids under eight years old. This was won by Alex Davis, and he was awarded $150.00.
Everyone is looking forward to next year’s event.
