May 18, 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM @ Lake Sammamish State Park
If it’s spring, it must be time to go fishing! Come join in the fun catching a perch in Lake Sammamish while winning prizes. The action begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 18 with final weigh in at 1 p.m.
Derby headquarters will be at the boat launch at Lake Sammamish State Park. There are divisions for children and adults with prizes for the longest perch, heaviest perch and the heaviest 25 perch. A bonus prize for the largest pikeminnow will also be awarded.
The derby coincides roughly with the migration of Lake Sammamish Kokanee from the streams into the lake. These little fish have to survive the gauntlet of predators — like perch — to survive and become future spawners.
All proceeds from the derby support the Lake Sammamish Kokanee recovery work being done by the Bellevue-Issaquah Chapter of Trout Unlimited in partnership with the Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership (UWRP) and the Kokanee Work Group (KWG).
