The U DA MAN Fishing Tournament was held on the Yaquina River from South Beach Marina and here are the results!!
124 individual anglers from 45 registered boats fished from 7AM to 3PM in the worse weather that our tournament group has faced during in its 20 year history, with heavy rains and high winds highlighting our day. But like that old saying, the worst day fishin’ beats the best day workin’.
This years Chinook winners were:
Jim Lawrence of Salem, OR 20.98 lbs
Brian Snaza of Eugene, OR 20.96 lbs
Justin Coxen of Dallas, OR 20.04 lbs
The Coho side pot winner was Frank Stout of Newport, OR, 11.1 lbs.
The U DA MAN Fishing Tournament is completely managed by volunteers with a great amount of support from local businesses and individuals. We are a 501.c3 and all proceeds from the tournament are targeted for salmon enhancement in the Yaquina Bay and River systems.
We wish to THANK all who participated again this year and our sponsors who made it another successful day of fishing on the Yaquina River.
