Northwest Anglers Convention
Up your catch rate – hone your program.
March 5th & 6th
A much anticipated event – this seminar in Portland Oregon is a meeting of the minds on Spring Chinook tactics. As a guest of the seminar you will receive a grab-bag loaded with sponsor gifts and discounts. As a listener you will gain access to the many key elements that go into a successful spring chinook fishing trip. Each presenter will be discussing specific factors on bait & lure usage as well as giving crucial information on where to find the fish. They will go into depth on techniques that work not only for springers, but also other salmon fisheries, though the focus will be primarily on Columbia River Spring Chinook.
Day one consists of topic-specific discussions from seasoned experts on salmon behavior, where they sit and how they react. You’ll learn about reading the river and adjusting your presentation to the conditions. Ask questions and interact. Take notes. You’re bound to come away with a fresh perspective on salmon fishing!
Day two is an on-the-water learning experience that allows the guides/presenters to display techniques on the water. Certain concepts can be better shown in action rather than in the seminar room. Day two will allow you to get a hand on a rod, tie up your gear (or be shown how) and hone your salmon technique. Though it’s early March and these are informational trips there may even be a chance at a bonus early springer! The main objective though will be to understand trolling techniques at an intimate level so that you can confidently bring what you’ve learned to your boat.
You’ll be learning from industry veterans and accomplished anglers in a professional venue.
