The Northwest Fishing Derby Series is a fishing promotion program directed by the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA) – the producers of the Seattle Boat Show – has a new name and includes some new fish species. In 2020, the series will partner with 20 derbies throughout the region to promote fishing opportunities and events. At the conclusion of the Everett Coho Derby, the series will award the grand prize boat to one lucky winner!
The Northwest Fishing Derby Series was created in 2004 by the NMTA for the purpose of promoting fishing opportunities in the Pacific Northwest. In the first year of the series, six existing derbies were identified to become partners.
