What a great Derby we had even with the water 43 feet below full pool . The weather was great for fishing for everyone.

We had 328 contestants and 120 boats.   They came from Alberta and British Columbia, also 5 different US States.  There were 16 kids under the age of 15 that all received Fishing Poles and tackle boxes just for being in the derby.  Everyone in the derby was up for door prizes and boy did we have a lot to give out.  It was great fishing, the fish were practically jumping in the boat. the Rainbows were not as big as we thought they would be but we still did great with an 11 pounder. The Kokanee are bigger as well they are running between 7 and 9 inches long.

This is one of the most exciting events we do here at Koocanusa Resort and Marina and we look so forward to this every year. It is a lot of work but so worth it in the end.  We would like to thank all businesses for the door prize donations that we got and thank you very much for the years of helping make this derby the success it has always been.  Every year we seem to see a lot of new and many of the former contestants.

 

Thank you to every business and the many individuals that donated the many many door prizes for the contestants.  We appriciate everyone of you so much.

Next year we have the fishing Derby and the Canadian Holiday is the same weekend.  The Derby and Canadian Holiday will be May 19th and 20th 2018,

Thank you to everyone that took the time out of their weekend and came to enjoy the Derby with us.
