Question: What do you get when you have one generous donor and two local Oregon organizations working together?
Answer: A match made in heaven and an opportunity to revive the Lower Deschutes River!
An anonymous donor – a supporter of both Native Fish Society and Deschutes River Alliance – has generously donated their prime-time Babine Steelhead Lodge spot to our organizations. To leverage this donation, DRA and NFS have decided to raffle off this prime spot and use the funding to help fuel our shared missions of reviving the Lower Deschutes River.
According to legendary Babine guide Bob Wickwire, the week donated is labeled “The best of the season, year in and year out!” You will enjoy some of the most epic Steelhead fishing known to humankind the week of September 17 – 24, 2021.
Ticket sales will begin on Sunday, August 15th and run through August 31st.
Each entry is $100 with only 250 tickets being sold. The winner will be drawn at 3pm on Wednesday, September 1st.
The fortunate winner of the draw will have 16 days to pack their bags – and lucky fly rod – and make the trek to Smithers, BC in time for the helicopter ride to the Babine.
It really doesn’t get much better than this!
All proceeds from this raffle will support the Native Fish Society and Deschutes River Alliance’s collaboration conservation project to revive the lower Deschutes. Learn more about this amazing and unique project HERE. Hint…it involves 600 goats!
