Get ready for winter steelhead with Nov. 8 workshop

October 27, 2014

SALEM, Ore. – The winter steelhead season is just around the corner, and ODFW is partnering with the Sandy Chapter of the NW Steelheaders to sponsor a winter steelhead fishing workshop on Nov. 8 at the Sandy River near Portland.

The workshop will go from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Glenn Otto Park in Troutdale and will cover three of the most popular bank fishing techniques – plunking, drift fishing and bobber-jig fishing. Participants also will learn where to find steelhead in the river, how to identify native fish, and the best methods for releasing native fish quickly.

The $52 workshop fee covers instruction, program materials, use of ODFW equipment and a one-year membership in the Association of NW Steelheaders. Participants must have an Oregon fishing license, combine angling tag and Columbia River Basin endorsement.

To learn more about the workshop, and to register, visit the ODFW website at, and click on the Event Calendar button.
