McKenzie Fly Fishers, Cascades Family Fly Fishers Spring Fly Fishing Festival
Saturday April 16th 2011
9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Campbell Community Center, 155 High Street (at the river, next to Skinners Butte)
Learn about aquatic insects, water safety, knots and leaders, and tackle selection. Watch demonstration fly tying professionals show off their tying techniques. Look for more bug life than ever in the live display tank, and then let the experts help you “match the hatch” at instructional tying tables. Learn about current fish management activities and ask an ODFW fish biologist where you can catch fish. Try your hand at designing the perfect fish habitat on the ODFW stream table. Tie a fly and then take it to Alton Baker Park to catch one of the fish being planted there before the festival. Join with expert casters for fly-casting instruction and demonstrations throughout the day on the lawn by the river. Learn about gear and boating techniques that will help keep you safe on the water. Learn about the art of bamboo rod building from professionals and skilled practitioners. Bring your own bamboo or conventional rod project and sit down next to experts who will help you solve problems. Adults and children of all ages are welcome. For more information call (541) 343-3109, or email oakcrk@aol.com.
