FISHING -- Anglers registered for the annual steelhead fishing derby on the Clearwater and Snake Rivers will be given food, prizes and information at the opening ceremonies on Friday (Nov. 16) in Lewiston.

Activities that formerly were split at the beginning and end of the derby will combined in the opening event of the 2012 Kendall Subaru Clearwater Snake Steelhead Derby, organizers say.

As this advance story revealed, the event itself has a pair of new twists that will please traveling anglers, especially those from Washington.

Prizes, including a guided fishing trip and a $1,000 Cabela's gift card, will be awarded Opening Ceremony, which starts at 6 p.m. Friday at Kendall Subaru. Registered anglers also get dinner and they can purchase additional meals for their non-fishing guests.

Chevy USA is flying Pro Angler, Dion Hibdon, from Missouri to speak on fishing techniques.

Derby registration forms are available at Tri-State Outfitters, Camp, Cabin, and Home, Riverview Marina, at the Lewis Clark Valley Chamber of Commerce or online.

Anglers will receive a complimentary Mag Lip 3.5 lure when registering for the derby.

Info: Lewis Clark Valley Chamber of Commerce,509.758.7712.
