    Membership Meeting

    Our Bellingham meeting space has moved. We will now be meeting at Mayberry Sporting Goods located at 1825 Cornwall Avenue. Mayberry is located on the corner of Ohio and Cornwall so please mark your calendars as the North Sound Chapter resumes its monthly membership meetings in Bellingham after the summer break on Wednesday, October 12th beginning at 6:00pm.

    Sue Madsen will be our featured speaker and will be speaking about the Samish and Skagit River watersheds.

    Sue is the Restoration Ecologist for the Skagit River Fisheries Enhancement Group (SFEG). Sue will talk about the Samish River and the restoration work being done on that river including the work the North Sound volunteered for during the summer on the head waters. In addition, Sue will touch on Skagit River projects and hopefully a bit on nutrient enhancement.

    2nd Annual “Resurrection Derby” at Friday Harbor

    Fellow CCA members and supporters of the North Sound Auction and Fundraiser, the San Juan Islands Chapter of the Puget Sound Anglers is pleased to announce the Resurrection Derby will take place December 2rd & 3rd at the Port of Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, WA.

    Derby planners have scheduled the derby to coincide with the opening week of the winter fishing season in the San Juan Islands. “The winter season in the San Juan’s is a selective fishery. We want to raise the awareness of the benefits of selective fishing, while promoting good sportsmanship and resource stewardship” said one of the derby organizers, Andy Holman. All net proceeds from the derby, which is staffed by club and community volunteers, will go directly towards salmon enhancement projects.

    Tickets for the Resurrection Derby at Friday Harbor will go on sale in mid-October. For more information, please go to:
