Brian Dennis, Shannon Ford and Bob Jungquist chanted “No Fin, No Fin, No Fin,” while David Reep neared the end of a 25-minute battle with a large chinook Friday, Feb. 6, the first day of the 12th Annual Roche Harbor Salmon Classic. Dennis netted the fish, hauled it aboard the Tater Yott and checked to make sure the fish didn’t sport a wild king’s adipose fin. He jumped, fist-pumped and yelled: “No Fin!”
The 12th Annual Roche Harbor Salmon Derby scheduled to take place the first weekend in February will happen after all. Debbie Sandwith originally announced it had been cancelled due to an early closing of the fisheries in Area 7. She got word last night it can go ahead. Registration is Thursday, February 6 with fishing February 7 and 8. The derby is sold out.
