The Manson Business Association is conducting a trout derby on Lake Chelan Saturday, April 11th with a different twist. Sure there will be prizes awarded for the biggest rainbow trout caught in both adult and youth divisions, but everyone that enters the derby has a chance at winning $50,000.00! The way it works is that everyone that registers for the derby is entered into a drawing. The person that is drawn gets to guess the pre-selected fractional weight of the largest fish caught. If they match the entrant wins $50,000.00. This is a very clever way to get people to come to Lake Chelan and see how great the trout fishing is. The entry free is $25.00 for those over 15 years of age and $10.00 for those under the age of 15. It is really easy to enter, too. All you have to do is log onto and click on the derby link. The weigh in will be at 2:30 p.m. on April 11th. You can register the day of the derby, but there is an extra $5.00 fee. If you really need an excuse to come and try the fishing at Lake Chelan, the Manson Business Association has come up with a good one. This will be fun day whether a there is a big cash winner or not. Hope to see you there!
