The Banks Lake Triple Fish Challenge took place last weekend, and it was the best ever. Warm weather and calm waters greeted the nearly 80 folks that signed up for the event. The volunteers from the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce did an excellent job organizing the fishing derby—gathering up prizes and managing the two derby without a hitch. There were lots of people from the local community who helped out, and a special thanks went out to Rachelle Haven at the Chamber and Nic Alexander was recognized for his work on the event. This was the ninth annual Banks Lake Triple Fish Challenge and the first time that the grand prize, a four person Achilles inflatable boat was awarded to an angler that caught all three species in one day. Rusty Stanley took home the grand prize, and there was cash and prizes handed out in both adult and youth divisions. This derby is one of my favorites as it is something so many local businesses help make happen, and I see more families and youngsters participating in this one than most others I attend. Well done Grand Coulee Dam. Looking forward to next year!
