Wenatchee Salmon Derby a big success

Last week was a tremendous success for fishing throughout the greater Wenatchee Valley. On July 14-16, the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) hosted the fifth annual Wenatchee Salmon Derby which specifically targeted the catching of Chinook and Sockeye salmon between Rock Island and Wells Dam.
