Focused on Salmon Recovery
The Northwest Salmon Derby Series, presented by Allstate Boat Insurance and Northwest GMC Dealers, was created in 2004 by the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA) for the purpose of promoting salmon fishing opportunities in the Pacific Northwest. In the first year of the Series, six existing derbies were identified to become partners of the Series. Since that year, the Series has expanded to 15 tournaments in 2014.

Carefully and selectively, the Series has been very keen to partner with derbies that are wild fish friendly. Each event occurs within the guidelines of open fishing seasons that occur at a time of the year and area where hatchery chinook and coho salmon exist. In fact, some of the tournaments have gone to “hatchery fish only” even during times and places where retention of unmarked chinook and coho are acceptable for retention in accordance with the Department of Fish and Wildlife rules.

We, at the Northwest Salmon Derby Series and NMTA, are a partner to the protection and enhancement of wild chinook and coho stocks. We encourage anglers to fish selectively and carefully to release unmarked chinook and coho salmon, particularly when the rules require release.

By working with government agencies to protect wild stocks, while accessing abundant hatchery salmon, we believe this formula is the road map to the future of sport fishing for salmon in the Pacific Northwest.

 

 
How to Win the Boat
In order to win the 2014 grand prize boat, anglers can fill out a Northwest Salmon Derby Series raffle ticket at any of the 15 derbies (prior to Sept. 22). Every angler’s name, address, telephone number and e-mail will be entered, free, into the drawing during the derbies. One ticket will be issued per angler per derby. For example, if an angler entered all 15 derbies, their name would be entered 15 times, whether they caught a fish or not during any derby. Remember, in order to win the boat, purchase of a derby ticket from the host derby is not required. One entry per person, per derby.

Any anglers participating in derbies after Sept. 21 will be entered to win the grand prize for the 2015 Series.
