A 44.6-pound fish tops the Ketchikan King Salmon Derby ladder following the second weekend of the three-weekend annual derby.

Timothy Forbes turned in his lunker Saturday at the Mountain Point weigh-in station. He knocked out the previous weekend’s top fish, a 40-pound Chinook caught May 26 by Brian Thompson.

Thompson now is in third place. Second place is held by William Pattison, who turned in his 41-pound fish Saturday at Knudson Cove.

In the youth category, Brendon Nix tops the ladder with a 27.4-pounder. Ava Elerding is in second with her 26.6-pound fish, and Kurt Powers holds third place with a 24-pound Chinook.

The derby wraps up next weekend.
