Get ready for summer steelhead and salmon with Aug. 8 workshop

July 29, 2015

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

The workshop will go from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Glenn Otto Park in Troutdale and will cover popular techniques for fishing from the bank and from a boat. Participants also will learn how to select the right gear and target the right water, and the importance of the tides in fishing success.

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. Or call Darlene Sprecher at (503) 947-6025.
