The 75th Annual Golden North
Salmon Derby will be:

August 13-15, 2021!

TSI received a call from a derby participant who shared that their fish was listed as a Coho, but was actually a King. Bringing this correction to TSI cost the participant $150 in prize money.

TSI is deeply appreciative of this participant and believes this is indicative of all anglers who participate in the GNSD.
