Annual Kitimat Fish Derby a success

The Kitimat Chamber of Commerce wraps up another year of the popular Fish Derby in Kitimat.

Nothing was scaled back for this year’s annual Fish Derby, held over the Labour Day weekend.

The event, held at Heritage Park at the Kitimat Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Info Centre, provided a whole afternoon and evening with music, food, and activities for the family.

But of course the fish are the main event, and many people brought their cohos in for the chance to snag the top prize.

Taking the overall largest coho prize (which comes with a $1,000 cheque) and topping the men’s category is Cory Eisenberger, who angled his way to catching a 15lbs, 12 7/8oz.

In the junior category, Dawson Calkins pulled in his own 13lbs, 7/8oz coho to take the top spot.

In the women’s category, Sharmen Calkins’ 10lbs, 15 1/8oz coho earned her the prize.
