Potential prize

Published March 25, 2011 / by Steve Berentson

Because the Anacortes Salmon Derby is part of the Northwest Salmon Derby series, participants qualify for an end-of-season drawing for this boat. The boat is displayed near the Cap Sante Boat Haven Harbormaster’s office, just a stone’s throw from the Big Tent where this weekend’s derby activities will be coordinated. Official derby days are Saturday and Sunday, April 26 and 27. The derby is sponsored by the Fidalgo Chapter of the Puget Sound Anglers, with all proceeds going to a scholarship fund.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
