Mat-Su King Salmon Derby started
The Derby has begun, someone just has to tell the fish! The Mat-Su king derby started May 20, and has a 10.2# fish leading it right now. 7 weekly prizes in Adult and Youth categories are handed out each week, as well as a match the weight prize. Week 1 weight is 11 pounds, and this fish is a contender! (Might have been closer but it was bled out- kudos for preserving meat quality!) Top prize for the derby is $10,000 cash... the rest of the prizes havent' been published yet. (www.matsukingsalmonderby.com) Fishing on the Deshka was slow this weekend, but a 58 pound fish came from the Deshka May 18 a couple years ago (2 days before the derby started), so chances of catching a hog early on are good. Tight lines!
