— The seventh annual Wasco Salmon/Steelhead Tournament will be Saturday, Sept. 28, with men, women and youth registering at Heritage Landing at the mouth of the Deschutes River between 5 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.

The fee is $20 for adults 18 and older, $5 for kids 17 and younger.

The registration fee includes hamburger/hot dog lunch, which is served in Wasco at the Railroad Depot.

Contestants must have all the required licenses and tags, a river pass is available at the registration site. No fishing will be allowed in the Deschutes River, only in the Columbia River.

Weigh in is from noon to 3 p.m. and all trophies and prizes will be awarded at 3 p.m. in Wasco at the historic RR Depot (follow the signs to Wasco). Trophies, rods and reels will be given all first-place winners, and trophy and prize for second-place winners, plus the popular “I, also, fished” (but didn’t catch anything) and silent auction.
