Coho aplenty at Everett fishing derby

EVERETT — While everyone in the Everett Coho Derby enjoyed good weather and abundant coho salmon this weekend, kids were the real winners of this year’s event.

A record 88 coho were caught during the kids’ competition, with cash prizes for the top three fish. Noble Hargitt of Tulalip, took home first place with aa 11.95-pound coho. As always, kids entered the event for free and all received a donated toy prize.

In the adult competition, derby volunteers weighed-in more than 900 coho from an estimated 2,000 participants.

Organizers were overwhelmed by the sheer numbers involved in this year’s derby.

After all the fish were weighed, Everett’s Harvey Aney took home the top $3,000 cash prize for his 17.08-pound coho.

Even though Aney boasted the biggest fish, most fisherman were lucky to take home a beautiful coho or two.
