Chinook Showdown: Spring Salmon Derby

Chinook Showdown: Spring Salmon Derby

Springer season is upon us, which means it's time for Next Adventure's Annual 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 lunch 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.

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, or at day-of registration at the PSC. There will be no event check-in if pre-registered; simply go fish and bring your fish to the PSC for weigh in between 11am and 2pm. Fish MUST be gilled and gutted (aka cleaned but not filleted) prior to weigh in.

Sign up before April 20th to save $10 on registration! April 20th and later, will be full price at $30.

Weigh in, food, and award ceremony will take place at the PSC. 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.
