On Saturday May 20th, Barry Bonds hit his 714th career homerun tying him with Babe Ruth for the 2nd place home run record. On that same day, we also set the record for the best ever derby at Don Pedro commemorating our late founder Phil Johnson. With an even bigger attendance than last year, despite threats of thunder & lightning, participants were treated to sunny skies and breezy conditions. The kokanee bite was a challenge. Although fish were caught throughout the derby, localized pods of fish were found that provided the winning fish. Most fish were in the 13 plus inch category with winning fish in the 15 inch class range. The king salmon showed up in good numbers. Rolled shad proved to be the ticket for anglers fishing the middle bay to Jenkins Hill areas. Once again, this derby would not have been a success without the dedication of our members and those who make a difference year after year.
See you all at New Melones!!
