The Brewster Salmon Derby was a big success again this year. Tickets sold fast and the event sold out at 275 participants. They enjoyed good fishing, too. There were 128 kings weighed in this year. This derby continues to provide one of the highest success rates of most salmon derbies, and anglers that are looking for good action on summer-run salmon should consider trying the Brewster Pool. There are still thousands of kings stacked up below the mouth of the Okanogan River here. The adult King of the Pool winner of the event for biggest fish was Matt Featherly with a 19.68-pound fish, and took home $2,000.00. Amanda Davis won the youth division with a 14.70-pound king, and was awarded $750.00. First place in the child division was taken by Trace LaDoux with a 9.94-pounder, and he got a check for $100.00. Anglers are also having success catching summer-run kings below and above Wells Dam, and at Chelan Falls. Also, there are still good numbers of anglers fishing for sockeye salmon on Lake Wenatchee, and they are getting fair numbers of them. These fish run much larger than those on the Columbia.
