CLACKAMAS, Ore. — People who want to master the art of successful steelhead fishing are invited to a workshop at Oxbow Regional Park near Sandy on Saturday, July 23 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sponsored jointly by ODFW and the Sandy River chapter of the Association of NW Steelheaders, the workshop will cover such topics as how to select the right equipment, effective fishing techniques, and “hands-on” training from the banks of the Sandy River, all presented by expert fishermen.

No prior fishing experience is necessary, and all the gear needed will be provided, although participants are free to bring their own if they prefer.

Picnic lunch will be provided as part of the registration fee, which includes a one year membership in the NW Steelheaders. Cost is $52 for adults and $22 for youths ages 9-17. The workshop is limited to the first 30 registrants.
