Port of Edmonds Headquarters
Weigh-In Deadline is 2:00 PM Sharp
The 2021 Edmonds Coho Derby gets started at 5:00 a.m. Saturday September 11th. Please consult the Port of Edmonds for the current hours of the Edmonds launch sling on derby day. The weigh-in runs until 2:00 p.m. sharp. You must be in line to weigh your fish by 2:00 p.m. No one will be allowed in line after 2:00 p.m. No exceptions. Be sure to weigh in your fish early as we have had ties every year and the tie breaker is the fish weighed in first. When you approach the scale be sure to have your derby ticket stub handy to show to the weigh master. Your fish will be weighed and logged into our computerized leader board system. The top 10 fish will be held on ice. We encourage you to retrieve your fish early if your fish drops out of the top 10. At 3:30 PM Prizes will be given away to the winners.
Moorage and Parking
The Edmonds Marina guest moorage is very popular. See the Port of Edmonds Marina Office for details on what is available if you plan to put your boat in the water Friday night. We encourage you to take your boat out of the water when you are done fishing as there is always a big crowd in the guest moorage area at weigh in time. We have arranged with the Port to offer parking for derby participants who launch their boats at Edmonds to park in the large lot at the very north end of the marina. There are only a handful of spots in the parking lot adjacent to Derby Headquarters for trucks and boats on trailers. Normally the large fenced lot across the street from the North end of the marina is used for only trailer parking but only on derby day the Port of Edmonds will let you park in that lot with your boat on the trailer. There is limited parking on the streets in front of the marina. Do not park in any Port of Edmonds parking space with the yellow lines as those are clearly marked for Port of Edmonds tenants only. We have delayed this ceremony to allow all of our Everett weigh in derby participants plenty of time to weigh in their fish at the Bayside weigh in station and drive down to the Edmonds.
Everett Weigh-In Station at Bayside Marine
• After you have your boat on your trailer either park and walk your fish up to the scale to be weighed or drive through as directed by derby officials.
• Have your ticket stub ready to present to the weigh master.
• If your fish is in the top 10 be sure to keep it on ice and take it to Edmonds.
• Please leave the area immediately after weighing in your fish so others can get in line.
If at all possible please leave your boat & trailer at home before coming to the Edmonds Derby Headquarters as there is very limited parking there. You will have 1 1/2 hours between weigh-in and prize presentation.
