Derby time

Jay Field (right) and fellow members of the local chapter of Puget Sound Anglers have been quite busy for the past few weeks. Tomorrow marks the first day of the two-day Anacortes Salmon Derby, an event launched last year to raise money for scholarships. This derby has been a smash success, with all 800 participant tickets sold out several weeks ago. Port of Anacortes staff will be busy today launching dozens of boats as they arrive at Cap Sante Boat Haven. Look for hundreds of weekend “guests” as derby competitors and their families descend on Anacortes for a Saturday/Sunday event that features a top prize of $10,000. Last year the Fidalgo Chapter netted $24,000 for college scholarships.

About Photographer 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.
