10th Annual Crab Derby!

As many of you may recall, 26 tagged crabs are released into the Nehalem Bay at the beginning of each day of the Derby. The tags correlate to prizes such as the grand prize of $1000 each day, donated by the owners of The Jetty Fishery and Kelly’s Brighton Marina, to vendor donated items such as sporting goods, fishing equipment, gift certificates good for meals and accommodations, and locally created artwork.

The 2017 Derby dates are June 3rd and 4th, chosen to coincide with the yearly Free Fishing Weekend, when no license for crabbing, clamming or fishing is required.

All proceeds of the event are donated to the Rockaway Beach Lion Club who will also be selling hotdogs at the Derby for those friends and family that don’t like crab. Rockaway Lion is a Service Club. 100% of their funds are used to help other people with glasses and hearing aids, hunger, protecting our environment and supporting youth programs
We ask you to please seriously consider any donation of your time, merchandise, or money you can in support of this great cause!
