Join us on October 5th – 7th, 2017 in Tillamook for two days of fishing and celebrating this wonderful sport fishing resource. We celebrate with great meals, contests, and prizes for everybody! Thanks to the event sponsors and anglers, this event has generated over $7,500 to improve Tillamook County sport fisheries in the past three years. Most recently, funds were granted to the Lower Nehalem Community Trust to assist in acquiring the Bott’s Marsh property in the Nehalem Bay protecting and allowing enhancement of the estuary’s most productive smolt habitat.”

Get your three-person team together and give catching some of Oregon’s biggest fall Chinook your best SHOT!
