This weekend is the annual Budweiser-Lowrance King Salmon Derby in Brewster, and it looks like it will be one of the best ever. There was a short drop in the fishing action when we had some rain dumped into the Okanogan River, but we’ve had triple digit temperatures to get the thermal barrier back in place. Thousands of kings and sockeye are stacked up off the mouth of the Okanogan River, and fishing should be excellent for the derby. There is still time to get registered for the event, too. You can go to their web site at and get an entry form. You can also just go and get your registration done as long it is prior to Thursday, July 31st a 9 p.m. This derby has the reputation of producing more salmon than any other in the state, and also for taking great care of the participants. You don’t have to catch a fish at this one to have a great time and to win some great prizes. It is even more important to fish the derby this year to show support of the businesses in the communities of Brewster and Pateros that have suffered due to the fires earlier this month. Both communities are ready to welcome anglers for the derby.
