Our May 14th meeting started with our Annual spaghetti feed. We had lots of good stuff for all who attended. A big thank-you to John Drew the kitchen crew and those who purchased tickets and enjoyed a great meal.
The theme of the evening was Kokanee fishing. Our own member Tony Dobson gave an informative presentation on the fishery. John Keizer was at the fish talk table with lots of Kokanee tackle to inspect. Those who participated in the raffle won Kokanee specific rods, reels and tackle packs. Thanks to all!
Saturday May 18th was our Annual Kokanee Derby on America Lake. Around 20 participants’s enjoyed “ok” weather and “ok” fishing. Fish were scattered anywhere from 10’ to 50’ down. The winners will be announced at the June 11th meeting and prizes will be awarded for biggest Kokanee and biggest Trout. Tony Dobson of Snatchin Lips Custom Rods has donated one of his creations for the winner of the biggest Kokanee.

Don’t forget that June’s meeting is also our annual Garage Sale, which starts at 5:00 P.M, with General meeting to follow at 7:00 P.M.
