Chamber: tourney a success

 


The Triple Fish Challenge over last weekend was a success, chamber of commerce officials said Monday.

“No one won the boat, though,” chamber Executive Director Peggy Nevsimal stated.

Ten boats and 18 anglers participated in the two-day event held at Coulee Playland, along with a bass tournament.

To win the boat you had to have the highest weight catch of a bass, trout and walleye, for each of the two days.

Jim Stanley of Creston came the closest, catching all three fish the first day, but only a trout on the second day.

The top five winners by weight and the weight of their fish were: Stanley (8.96 pounds); Nic Alexander of Grand Coulee (8.56 pounds); Jim Bryant of Wenatchee (7.5 pounds); Rod Boutain of Grand Coulee (6.54 pounds); and Heidi Stanley of Creston (5.56 pounds).

This was the second year running of the Triple Fish Challenge. The boat was a four-person Achilles inflatable with a Yamaha motor.
