Hass unofficially wins 67th salmon derby

Posted: August 11, 2013 - 11:06pm

Although nothing’s official until Tuesday, Jody Hass has tentatively won the 67th Golden North Salmon Derby with a 29.2 pound king salmon, according to a Territorial Sportsmen, Inc. release.

Hass’ winning fish was turned in at 12:50 p.m. at the Douglas weigh-in station.

Second place unofficially goes to Al Risley with a 28.8 pound king salmon turned in at Amalga Harbor. Third place unoffically goes to Amy Fosket with a 26 pound king salmon turned in at Auke Bay, the release stated.

Results will be certified by the Territorial Sportsmen, Inc. board Tuesday. The awards ceremony will be held 7 p.m. Thursday at Centennial Hall, where all of the top 67 fish will be recognized and awards will be distributed. Award winners must bring their derby ticket and weigh-in stub to claim a prize.

More than 1,200 people fished in the derby this year, said Chairman Mike Satre in the release. Proceeds from fish caught in the derby will go toward a scholarship fund for local graduating high school students.

Full derby results will be posted to goldennorthsalmonderby.org as they become available.
