i Jun 18th Comments Off by

Thank you to everyone for supporting of our small Kiss My … Chinook Derby. It was a successfull and fun day of salmon fishing enjoyed by 130 anglers. A special thank you to our generous hosts Pedder Bay RV Resort and Marina for allowing us to use their facilities for our weigh station and derby headquarters.

The largest Chinook prize was won by a 20.50 lbs wild salmon that measured one millimetre less than the 85 cm slot limit. Congratulations to Clay Corner for landing the winning fish at the Trap Shack and taking home the $2,000 dollar prize. The $2,000 draw prize was won by angler Kel Phair.

As an angling advocacy organization working to protect our important salmon fishery around South Vancouver Island, we are grateful to all for their support of our society. Be sure to know that we will continue to lobby for fair access to the salmon resource and better and earlier notification of the salmon regulations each year.
