The Wahkiakum Chamber of Commerce will host a Fall Run Salmon Derby “Get Hooked” on August 26th & 27th at the Elochoman Marina.  This is the first year for this event.  Funds raised at this event will provide a Wahkiakum High School senior with a scholarship to attend a college, university, or trade school after graduation.  Last May we presented a graduating senior with a $1,000 scholarship from funds that were raised during the Spring “Hook the Hawg” Derby and we anticipate that this new event will be just as successful.

The derby will be a two day fishing event and because of the later tides will begin at 8:00 am on Friday, August 26th and finish in the evening on Saturday, August 27th.  Plan to stop the the chamber’s booth in the morning to ensure you are checked in for the derby.  Cash prizes, a custom fishing rod and more will be awarded for the largest salmon caught in four groups – Men, Women, Youth and Kids.

Tickets for the “Get Hooked” Fall Run Salmon Derby are available at the following locations:
Skomokawa Resort
Moore Auto
Bank of the Pacific-Cathlamet Branch
Elochoman Marina and at the Wahkiakum Chamber tent the day of the event.

We look forward to seeing you at the derby; please contact the Wahkiakum Chamber of Commerce if you have any questions or are interested in being a vendor at the event. (360) 795-9996
