Day of the derby found me headed for the west wall due north. I threw everything for bass for doodly. Beat over to  to the east wall coming out of Steele Canyon. I sucked hind tit until I busted out mini crawlers under a bobber pitched 3 ft from shore. It was on like King Kong until I ran out of worms. I ran the same stretch of wall fighting the wind for an hr and a half.

P1070869 P1070870Many fruitless hrs spent trolling from the top to 50 ft deep probing for salmonids.

Had to pedal my ass off to make it back for 1:00 PM weigh in.

One huge party Sunday to wrap up the event.

P1070874Summary:

Thank you FishWorks! NCKA kicks ass. You could not escape a campsite without being offered food etc. Looking forward to the next event.
