South Sound Chapter Salmon Derbies
In the past since the year 2000, the South Sound Chapter of Puget Sound Anglers has promoted a salmon derby on Hood Canal near Hoodsport WA.
The year 2012 the location was changed to South Puget Sound. The hopes
are that this will provide a broader fishing area base, & at the same time allow
local business in the Olympia area to participate in helping provide donations
that are a major portion of the prizes awarded.
2015 saw another change where we expanded to cover Marine area 11, 12 & 13.
This was our main fundraiser from which we make donations to worthy fish related organizations & projects.
However, after our dismal 2014 & 2015 turnout AND lack of quality salmon runs in the South Sound, along with WDFW not keeping their finger on the pulse of these salmon runs, and the low dollar income generated as compared to the volunteer time expended.
With heavy heart, the membership voted to discontinue our general public Salmon Derby,
We however are planning smaller inter-club derbies
