Background

The Kitsap Poggie Club salmon Derby is one of the Poggie club’s ways of providing family fun and outdoor fishing enjoyment. Our fishery is a premier fishery available to the public. The Poggie Club, in association with the Suquamish Tribe, the City of Bremerton and Washington State, raise 2.5 million salmon per year for us to target. The Kitsap Poggie Club also annually conducts:

  1. Annual Kid’s Fishing Day
  2. Salmon in the Classroom for local schools.
  3. Scholarships for youth to attend Washington State Conservation Camp.

Ticket sales from this derby fund these activities.
