Mark your calendars! The 2018 Coos Basin Salmon Derby, our 19th, is scheduled for September 8th & 9th with a kick-off BBQ & Silent Auction on Friday the 7th. This event is our primary way to raise money to maintain the wonderful Salmon Fishery we have here in the Bay. Funds raised pay for utilities, insurance and other necessities of maintaining the program. The Port of Coos Bay is a sponsor for this event and program that promotes the fishing industry and environmental sustainability.
