Sandpoint: K&K Thanksgiving Fishing Derby

K&K Fishing Derby

Those willing to brave the elements of big Lake Pend Oreille during Thanksgiving week often are rewarded with some of the best fishing of the year for the lake’s huge Kamloops trout. This week-long fall-fishing competition — staged annually by the Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club — adds some extra motivation, with big cash prizes for the biggest fish. If you don’t have a boat, the club will hook you up with one of the several charter fishing boats available. Get entry details and more at
