Chinook Showdown: Spring Salmon Derby


Ready to slay some Springers? It is time for Next Adventure's 2nd Annual Chinook Showdown: Spring Salmon Derby.  Open to kayak (and SUP) anglers of all ages, all proceeds from this fun event benefit the Portland chapter of Heroes on the Water (HOW).  Join us for a day of great company, great food, and (with luck) great fishing.


Your registration fee includes entry into derby and lunch at weigh in.  Additional non-angler meal tickets will be available for friends and family, again benefiting HOW.  An optional cash big-fish jackpot is also available for interested anglers. A $5.00 entry paid with your completed liability waiver, get's you into this winner take all jackpot.


NOTE: All anglers must complete and return a liability waiver prior to event.  Waivers may be returned by mail or in person at the Next Adventure PSC, or at day-of registration at the PSC.  There will be no event check-in if pre-registered; simply go fish and bring your fish to the PSC for weigh in between 10am and 3pm. Fish MUST be gilled and gutted (aka cleaned but not filleted) prior to weigh in.


Awards will be given for Biggest Overall Fish, Top Finishing Fly Angler, Top Finishing Junior Angler, Top Finishing SUP Angler.


Sign Up before April 2nd (The night of the Spring Salmon Clinic) to save $10 on registration. April 3rd and later, the price jumps to $30!


Weigh in, food, and award ceremony will take place at the PSC.  To keep the party atmosphere, we will be offering a 15% off everything (excluding boats and electronics of course). Please use offsite/street parking for this event.
