Unofficial Standings of Week 1 of the 58th King Salmon Derby
and Daily Drawing Winners


May 31, 2005

Ketchikan, Alaska - The unofficial results have been announced for the 1st week of the 58th King Salmon Derby. This family event which is sponsored by the Ketchikan CHARR membership has remained a grass roots effort over the 58 years of its existence and attracts over a thousand participants of all ages annually.

Local businesses sponsor a varitey of cash and prizes that are awarded to the top anglers. The first place derby ladder prize is $10,000 cash provided by the King Salmon Derby Committee. A complete list of all the prizes and sponsors is available on the Ketchikan CHARR web site at

All proceeds from the King Salmon Derby remain in the community and benefit the community in a variety of ways. Four non-profit organizations - the Knights of Columbus, the Society of American Foresters Dixon Entrance Chapter, the Ketchikan Volunteer Rescue Squad, and HoopMania - partner with the Derby staffing the weigh in stations. Each non-profit organization is given a stipend for their work which in turn is distributed through their respective activities throughout the local area.

According to CHARR, proceeds from the Derby have supported such projects as training for the local Search and Rescue group, the Deer Mountain Hatchery, and the downtown Ketchikan welcome arch. Currently, all proceeds from the Derby are used to provide scholarships for local students.

The 58th King Salmon Derby days are: Week 1: May 28, 29, & 30; Week 2: June 4 & 5; and Week 3: June 11 & 12, 2005.
