Sandy River Chapter Fishing Clinics

The steelhead clinic our chapter did at Camp Angelo on April 5th was very well received by the students and our partners in this effort, ODFW.  Both were quite impressed with the excellent instruction offered by our presenters and the helpfulness of our members. The lunch was popular too. I certainly agree!

ODFW contacted Doug Briggs and myself, expressing an interest in doing more clinics. We made agreement with them to do the following clinics-

•     Saturday August 9th-       9 AM - 5:30 PM  Fall Salmon

•     Saturday Nov. 8th  -        9 AM - 5:30 PM  Winter Steelhead

•     Saturday Feb. 7th -         9 AM - 5:30 PM Spring Chinook

•     Saturday May 9th-          9 AM - 5:30 PM  Summer Steelhead

All clinics will be held at our regular meeting place, the Sam Cox Building in Glenn Otto Park.

Clinic hours will be 9 AM to 3 PM.  Members may volunteer for the clinic and attend for free by checking in with me beforehand and volunteering to help in some way. Other than that they can register and pay via the ODFW website. Volunteers are expected to help the students on a scheduled 1/2 day from shore fish along the following Saturday 11/15/14  from 8 AM-12 PM . Meet at Glenn Otto Park at 8 AM

Room setup begins at 8 AM. If you are a volunteer, please show up then.

These clinics will be a bit longer than the April clinic allowing more “hands on” time to learn the knots and rigging methods. A great new feature is that as part of the fee paid to register for the class the students will receive a one year membership to the NW Steelheaders!

These clinics represent a significant new way of recruiting members, and providing angling instruction to interested people. Let me encourage all members to volunteer to help out in putting on the clinics. As a volunteer you get to be at the class for no charge, in exchange for helping someone new learn more about fishing. Hey, I learned a new trick or two myself!
