Fish identification
Casting and reeling
Angler ethics and regulations
Gear and equipment
Water quality testing

Family Fish Camp is for all families who want to learn more about how to jump-start their fishing experiences in the Pacific Northwest. Passionate anglers with years of experience will teach you the essential skills, and your family will have the opportunity to recreate together outdoors alongside new friends.

What is the age range for youth?

  • The majority of youth participants in previous years ranged from ages 7-12. However, this event is open to all ages!

What is included in the cost?

  • Two nights lodging in cabin bunks, five meals (Friday dinner through Sunday breakfast), and all weekend sessions and activities.

Do I need to bring fishing gear?

  • Nope! We will provide all necessary fishing equipment for the weekend. This event is geared toward families with little to no experience, so we do not expect you to bring any of your own gear.

When does the camp begin on Friday?

  • In previous years, check in began at 5 pm and dinner started at 6:30. Family Fish Camp 2018 will most likely follow a similar schedule. We may be able to accommodate you if you need to arrive later on Friday evening.

When does the camp end on Sunday?

  • Sunday morning activities will consist of breakfast, the option to continue fishing, and future adventure planning.  Camp will wrap up by late morning, so plan on being out by noon.

What will the weather be like?

  • March in Oregon can be quite rainy. The Steelheaders fish the rivers of Oregon rain or shine year round, so you can too! Dress for wet and cold weather.
