The Brewster King Salmon Derby

 The Brewster Salmon Derby wants to welcome you once again to Brewster and say thank you for choosing to be a part of our Annual Brewster King Salmon Derby. Always the 1st full weekend in August. We know you enjoy the great fishing we have here in the “Brewster Pool” where the Columbia and Okanogan Rivers meet and the Salmon bunch up before going upriver to spawn. The Salmon run sounds like it will be as good or better than last year providing plenty of opportunities to catch the winning fish.  We will be giving away lots of cash and prizes as always!  We could not put on this Derby without the continuing support of all our Sponsors, who are listed on our Sponsor’s Page and have ads here on the pages.  Click on their name and it will take you to their website or FaceBook page. WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW SPONSORS
