The Tualatin Valley Chapters March Fish-A-Long still has some spots available. I've fished with this group a couple times now and had a great time. Great way to get into some fish inexpensively, learn some new techniques, perfect some old techniques, and get tips from local guides and ODFW staff on when, where and how to catch fish in the Tillamook Bay rivers.
This event is open to all the public.
