Photos from the 72nd annual Kids Fishing Derby show families passing on traditions of the angler.
Mount Si Fish and Game Club’s started the derby at dawn last Saturday, May 4, with trout-stocked ponds behind the Snoqualmie Police Station drawing families.
With a competition for the biggest fish at a morning weigh-in youngsters ages 5 to 15 sought the big ones—rumor had it there was a five-pounder Rainbow or two lurking in the mini-lake.
The Game Club has hosted the derby for generations, as a way to instill a love of outdoors, fishing and family fun in the next generation.
Families can return to the ponds and, with luck, catch any trout who escaped the day last Saturday, over the next month or two.
