scappoose bay kayak fishing


 next adventure kayak fishing demo day


So you have tried fishing from the bank or a motor boat but want to get closer and be quieter? Dreamed of targeting a fall Chinook or a behemoth sturgeon from the comfort and flexibility of a kayak, but are not ready to jump into the deep end? Come get your line wet, with support from Wilderness Systems Pro-Team Members and Next Adventure Fishing Guides and Instructors. So much knowledge!

This is NOT a guided trip. The First Cast program gets you on the water with a guide and instructor to demo various fishing kayak models. But since we are already out there, we might as well drop a line in! We carry a wide range of models from premier fishing brands like Eddyline, Wilderness Systems, Ocean Kayak, Perception, Old Town and Hobie. Our guides will consult and give suggestions on what equipment to bring along, depending on what's biting. If you do not happen to have a rod, we will have a limited selection of gear available to demo.

Your experience will introduce boat features, an education on basic rigging, kayak fishing tactics, and of course, the opportunity to fish! We promise, you'll be hooked.      

Better yet, if you buy any 2017 fishing kayak within ONE WEEK of your Demo Day, we will knock a $100 off your boat! That means you get a free class and a great deal! Just to ice the cake, we will also give you 10% off all your accessories, and rig your boat for free. It's our gift to you to get you fishing right!

Cost: $100

Student to Instructor Ratio: 4:1
