Get ready for one of the largest kayak fishing events in the Northwest with Next Adventure! In this two and a half day class, we will show you the ropes and give you the knowledge to become a bottomfishing champion. Our first evening we will meet at the Paddle Sports Center to discuss equipment, safety precautions, rigging and other background information necessary to successfully and safely fish. The next day, meet us bright and early and we will head out to Depoe bay to try our hand fishing the calm estuary of Stiletz river and bottomfishing the saltwater over the course of next two days. We will discuss and practice boat maneuvers and handling, fishing techniques, navigation, and more. Part class, part guided fishing trip, so come prepared to camp and catch your limit, and eat some tacos! We will be camping at Chinook Bend Campground, and we would love for you to join us in your tent or RV.
