Women With Bait Steelhead Tourney Kicks Off At Riggins

The Spokesman-Review Posted By Rich Landers Jan. 31, 2012

FISHING — It's time for a women's road trip to Riggins, Idaho, to warm up the town and win cash in the Women with Bait steelhead fishing derby on the Salmon River.

Every guided boatload of ladies gets a “bait boy” to do all the dirty work so the women can concentrate on catching fish.

The event opens Wednesday and runs through March 3.

Contestants get a grab bag of goodies and the chance to win cash or prizes for the most fish, the biggest fish and even the smallest fish during that period.

 Contestants also tend to be a hit back home when they serve fresh steelhead for dinner.

The entry fee of $200 per angler includes the cost of the guide, gear, fish handling, boat, food and derby registration.

See the 2012 tournament rules.
