Sturgeon/Striper Derby 

November 2nd, 2019

Hi Folks!

If you’ve seen our flyer of our upcoming salmon derby, I just wanted to add a few things which were overlooked that I wanted everyone interested in entering to know about.

First, we once again have our “ Famous Pink Hat” to honor Sandy. This year, we are doing a mesh summer hat and they will be free to the first 45 entrants. So sign up early, once they are gone that will be it!

Second, Wimpy’s will be opening at 5:00 to accommodate early risers with a special breakfast menu. So please, take advantage of this early bird menu and support our great host for this derby.


Lastly, sign up early, get on the water and catch yourself some great salmon. Be safe and have fun! See you at the derby! Fish On .....🎣
