It’s week 3 of the King Salmon derby and top fish is still 40.6 pounds with the rest of the ladder well over 30 pounds. Sport fishermen are hitting it hard this weekend, especially because of the “special derby days” prizes that are up for grabs. Today, there were a lot of boats out trolling then running to another drag in search of that derby winner. Fishing has been difficult the last few days in spite of the increased rod hours fished and fishing pressure by Wrangell anglers. Hopefully, we will see a “fresh” batch of Kings show up to give our derby leader a run for the money and make the last few weeks of the derby more interesting!
