This year's main Derby Prize Sponsor is Les Schwab Tire Centers - thank you Les Schwab! Even with the sponsorship, we are in need of prizes for the Hooked on Fishing Trout Derby. We award prizes to the Top 100 largest fish caught during the Derby and they range in value of $10 - $100. There is also a "Get It Now" prize table with at least 400 prizes (valued .25 to $2) for the kids that catch a fish in the pond or those that don't want to wait until the awards and just want to grab a prize and go. We are still looking for the following prizes: click on the read article below to find out what is needed...... If your company would like to donate something toward the prizes please give the chamber office a call 425-432-0222. You will be recognized with a listing as a prize donor at the event and in a follow up thank you ad. Thank you for your consideration. read more

The Fishing Derby is looking for a business to sponsor the Fins & Grins photo op station at this year's Derby. The Fins & Grins is an area where kids and adults of all ages can proudly display their catch in front of a banner that has YOUR logo (click on this link to see a photo of what this looks like)! You can also set up a table to give out your marketing materials and business cards and talk to the people that stop by. What a great way to get your business name out to hundreds of people! Contact Erica at the Chamber if you are interested. 425.432.0222 x101 or ceo@maplevalleychamber.org read more

Time to get ready for the annual "Hooked on Fishing" event at Lake Wilderness. The fun starts on Friday, April 21st through Saturday, April 22nd. This year marks the 15th annual "Hooked On Fishing" Opening Day Trout Derby on Lake Wilderness. This is actually an event that spans generations of opening day enthusiasts. The Maple Valley Lion's Club originally sponsored the derby decades ago until 1994. In 2003 when the City of Maple Valley acquired the park from King County, a partnership was forged by the chamber, Maple Valley Rotary, and The City to bring the traditional opening day celebration back to Lake Wilderness. Where else can you go so close to home to camp out all night, enter a derby, and eat a ham and egg breakfast with all you can eat pancakes at midnight under the stars? read more
