The Biggest Party for Wild Fish in the Universe

Every April the Native Fish Society, 300 wild fish fervents, and 100 generous donors come together under the big top at Montgomery Park in Portland, OR to create the largest wild fish fundraiser/party in the universe. This year’s auction theme is Homewaters Reflect Hopes; as we acknowledge the recovery of wild salmonids that has begun in so many of our Pacific Northwest watersheds. This year’s auction will feature a delicious dinner by Food in Bloom Catering, beer by GoodLife Brewing, and wine from Lange Estate Winery, Yamhill Valley Vinyards and Z’ivo Wines. We hope to see you there!

Tickets are on sale for $100. You can register online or, if you prefer, we can register you over the phone by calling our Oregon City office at 503.496.0807.

2013 Auction Items
The Native Fish Society Benefit Banquet + Auction features over 150 items auctioned in three different categories: live, super silent and silent. Our silent and super silent items are auctioned off first, during a two hour silent auction. Super silent items are distinguished from silent items by their increased value and/or rarity. Typically, there are 125 items in these two categories.

24 Live items will be auctioned off during the live auction portion of the night (including a guided Upper-McKenzie trip donated by the Caddis Fly Shop) , concurrent with a delicious dinner, award ceremony and festivities.

Over the coming weeks NFS will be updating this page with this year’s auction items — don’t be alarmed if you don’t see all 150 items — some will remain a surprise until the night of the event. Also, check the sidebar for our list of generous auction donors and please patronize the businesses that care for wild, native fish as you do!

Hope to see you there.
