The Fishin' Magician

Print Article

Wednesday, June 1

The biggest pike minnow derby in the state is coming up on Fathers Day weekend again this year, and I wanted to make sure you knew about it in time to sign up.

The East Wenatchee Rotary Club and the Chelan County PUD have once again partnered to bring you the 23rd Annual Pike Minnow Derby on June 18th and 19th this year.

There will be over $10,000.00 in cash and prizes handed out between adult and youth categories. Tickets are $20 for adults and kids under the age of 14 can fish for free if fishing with adult ticket holder.

Tickets are available at Hooked on Toys in Wenatchee and Bob Feil Boats and Motors and Bi-Mart in East Wenatchee. Derby headquarters will be at the park in Orondo.

The derby serves two purposes. One is to remove as many pike minnows from the Columbia River as possible.

They are the leading predator of salmon and steelhead smolt. The second reason is to provide a fun activity for fishing families here in Central Washington. So, get your ticket and plan on having fun at the Annual Pike Minnow Derby!
