Tim Sacher, president of the Greater Pulaski Chamber of Commerce, noted that the new derby name w£s chosen to \better symbolize\ the popular annual event, and focus on the \great salmon fishing in our Eastern Lake Ontario area.\ The \Salmon-tario Derby\ is being sponsored by Genesee Beer and Ale, in cooperation with the Greater Pulaski Chamber of Commerce. Over $30,000 in prizes are available this year, including a 1985 21-ft. Prowler Travel Trailer, going to the angler with the biggest fish caught (not snatched). Berkley Trilene is the official line for the derby and supplies merchandise prizes. \Genesee Beer is again proud to be the major sponsor of the derby,\ commented Kevin Boutwell, president of Mohawk Beverage Distributing Co., distributors of Genesee beer and ale in Oswego County. ^Genesee has long been associated with fishing and this is a prime example of our commitment to the sport.\ Last year, over 2,000 salmon fishing afficionados from all over the Northeastern United States participated in the event, including derby winner Robert Murphy, of Millville, Pennsylvania. Murphy won the grand prize by hooking a 35-pound, 12-ounce chinook with a sponge lure in the Salmon River. Derby coordinators are expecting as many entries this year, drawn by the excellent fishing in the growing Lake Ontario salmonoid fishery, and the hundreds of merchant and cash prizes being offered.
