          Duck Lake 
The June 19 - 20 Duck Lake club tournament had 24 members and 5 guests fishing.  Congratulations to Tom Melowitz with 31.24 pounds for winning, Ken Ganancial with 28.51 pounds for second and Mike Hostetter with 26.79 pounds for third place.  Bryan Vance had the tournament and season big fish, 4.75 pounds. Complete results can be found on the club Web Site.  Doug Jorgensen received a complaint from the Ocean Shores police dept for 2 separate incidents.  Reports of a boater doing donuts and speeding in the canals on Friday.  We believe that to be a local resident and not a club member.  Reports of excessive speed at the blast off on Sunday.  The police indicated that they might change future permit hours to no earlier than 8:00 am in an effort to avoid these issues in the future.

  Roosevelt Tournament

The next club tournament is August 14 and 15 on Lake Roosevelt.  The lake is currently at full pool with the water temperature at 71 degrees.  The fish are currently positioned  similarly to what we found at Riffe Lake.  By tournament time they should have fully recovered from the spawn and be positioned in normal summer locations.
