Slam’n Salm’n Derby fundraiser begins

By KTVA CBS 11 News 7:36 PM June 13, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

Friday was opening day of the 2014 Slam’n Salm’n Derby and one contestant had already bagged a 26-pound king.

The annual event is the single largest fundraiser for the Downtown Soup Kitchen.

Last year’s derby brought in more than $50,000.

The derby rules state contestants must be over the age of six, and anyone older than 16 has to have a current sports fishing license.

The soup kitchen staff say the fish being caught in this year’s derby are a much bigger than last year’s.
