Fishing Derbies

two guys 4 fish
Fun, friendly competition leads to fish “tales” to be told for years to come! Here at Point Defiance Marina we feature many derbies throughout the year for you to test your new skills or the perfected skills you’ve learned over the years.

Visit our EVENTS PAGE to find an upcoming derby!

Derbies at Point Defiance Marina:

  • A monthly salmon derby is held where all collected entry fees are distributed to the lucky winners. (dependent on status of salmon fishing closure)
  • An annual Ling Cod Derby is held each May.
  • Informal smaller group derbies including the Wounded Warriors who fish with our volunteers just for fun.
  • Regional derbies with multiple weigh-in sites with ours being the primary site and the awards ceremony location. These regional derbies raise large sums of money for many charitable and conservation organizations--while still paying prizes into the thousands of dollars!

    These regional derbies include:
    • Puget Sound Anglers Gig Harbor Chapter Learn More
    • Puget Sound Anglers South King County Chapter Learn More
