UPDATE!!!  The Port Arthur Marina Boat Launch will be made available to Derby participants for the week of the derby... see rules below

1.        Marina Park launch ramps will be open for launching from 5:30 am to 6 pm daily (except Wednesday July 14th when they will close at 4 pm) for participants in the Salmon Derby.  Only vehicles pulling a boat with drivers in possession of a valid Derby entry ticket will be allowed to enter the park.  Members of the fishing party will be asked to car pool because of limited parking on site.

2.        Additional security will be engaged to assist with orderly and timely vehicle movements to reduce the potential for delays entering the park or vehicles remaining on the Pearl St. rail crossing.

3.        The boat launch parking area will remain open for marina contract holder car parking; however, to ensure that boats can be launched and removed safely, there will    be barricades in place to temporarily create access lanes for trucks and boat trailers.  Truck and trailer parking for the Salmon Derby will be provided in a temporary lot on the road to the former Pool 6 building and along the road.
