What a great Derby we had, the weather was great for fishing for everyone. The women sure cleaned up the fish this year. Two women took first place this year, Crystal Sieler took first place for the biggest trout and Deanna Kazemba took first place for combined weight of kokanee. Crystal Sieler is the second woman to win the trout portion of the derby. We haven’t had a woman win since 2014 and we couldn’t be happier about a woman taking home the first place prize.
We had 330 contestants and 120 boats. There were 14 kids under the age of 15 that all received 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 a 10 pounder. The Kokanee are bigger as well they are running between 7 and 11 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 door prizes for the contestants. We appreciate every one 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 18th and 19th 2019,
Thank you to everyone that took the time out of their weekend and came to enjoy the Derby with us.
