Puget Sound Anglers can compete in The Resurrection Derby, for a first-place cash prize of $10,000. This newest addition to the NMTA’s Northwest Salmon Derby Series will be held December 3rd & 4th at the Port of Friday Harbor.

For a mere $400.00 entry fee, those 100 teams (with up to 4 anglers per team), lucky enough to get a spot, will vie for $15,000 in guaranteed purse money offering a 1st place prize of $10,000, 2nd place $2,500, 3rdplace $1,000 and a $1,000 “Mystery Fish” prize during this two-day event. “I envisioned a serious winter derby for serious salmon anglers … an event very similar to the old Rosario Derby” said club President and derby executive committee member, Jimmy Lawson.

Derby planners have scheduled the event to coincide with the opening week of the winter fishing season in the San Juan Islands. “The winter season in the San Juans is a selective fishery. We want to raise the awareness of the benefits of selective fishing, while promoting good sportsmanship and resource stewardship” said derby organizer, Andy Holman. “Everyone who enters this derby is helping the fishery” said Bobby Wilson, derby organizer. Wilson went on to say, “All net proceeds from the derby, which is staffed by club and community volunteers, will go directly towards salmon enhancement projects”.

“We are pleased and encouraged by the enthusiasm and support shown by The Port of Friday Harbor, the San Juan Island Chamber of Commerce, businesses and the community” said event Chairman Kevin Klein. He went on to say, “Not only will this provide an economic benefit for our local economy in a dark time of the year, but will also give us the opportunity to showcase Friday Harbor and all it has to offer while providing needed funds for salmon enhancement”.

Tickets for the Resurrection Derby at Friday Harbor will go on sale in late-September. For more information, please go to:
