The 2019 14th Annual Brewster King Salmon Derby!!

On behalf of the City of Brewster and the Upper Columbia Derby Fund, we want to welcome you once again to Brewster, WA area and say thank you for choosing to be a part of our Annual Brewster King Salmon Derby. We know you enjoy the great fishing we have here where the Columbia and Okanogan Rivers meet. The salmon run is going well and we are sure you will again have plenty of opportunities to catch the wining fish. We will be giving away lots of cash and prizes as always!  We could not put on this Derby without the continuing support of all our sponsors, who are listed on our Sponsors Page and have Ad's here on the pages.  Click on their ad and it will take you to their website.  MANY THANKS TO ALL OUR SPONSORS!!

NEW LAST YEAR:  We are now a member of the NW Salmon Derby Series  which has a total of 15 Derby memberships.  Your entry into our Derby also enters you into the Grand Prize Drawing the First Weekend in November each year.  The Grand Prize is a $65,000 KingFisher 2025 Falcon Series boat powered with a Honda 150hp and 9.9hp trolling motors on an EZ-loader galvanized trailer. The fully-rigged boat comes with Scotty downriggers; Raymarine electronics; a custom WhoDat Tower; and a Dual Electronic Stereo.  Last year's winning entry came from "The Big One Salmon Derby" on Lake Coeur d'Alene.  We have included, in the Derby Rules, all the information about our new membership and how to "opt out" if you desire.  .
