Chinook Showdown Spring Salmon Derby 2022
Springer season is upon us, which means it's time for Next Adventure's Chinook Showdown! Open to kayak (and SUP) anglers of all ages, all proceeds from this fun event benefit the Portland chapter of Heroes on the Water (HOW). Join us for a day of great company, great food, and (with luck) great fishing.
Your registration fee includes entry into derby and food/refreshments at weigh in. Additional non-angler meal tickets will be available for friends and family, again benefiting HOW.
Awards will be given for Biggest Overall Fish, Biggest Limit, and Top Finishing Junior Angler. All awards are determined by weight. Fishing is open to the entire Columbia watershed however day-of waivers will need to be returned to Sellwood Park.
NOTE: All anglers must complete and return a liability waiver prior to event. Waivers may be returned by mail or in person at the Next Adventure PSC (early registration only), or at day-of registration at Sellwood Riverfront Park from 6-8am. There will be no required event check-in if pre-registered with a Waiver received; simply go fish and bring your catch to the PSC for weigh in between 12am and 3pm. Fish MUST be gilled and gutted (aka cleaned but not filleted) prior to weigh in.
Sign up before March 31th to save $10 on registration! April 1st and later, will be $30.
Weigh in, food, and award ceremony will take place at the Next Adventure Portland Paddle Sports Center To keep the party atmosphere, we will be offering 15% off in-stock items (excluding boats and electronics). Please use offsite/street parking for this event.
